Flower Hair Pin Tutorial
* 17ish inch strip of fabric (1-2 inches wide)
* 1 inch circle of felt
* Hair pin
* Button or bead for center of flower
Cut your fabric strip. It can be any fabric you prefer but should be thin enough to gather. Here I used a raw silk. The strip can be approximately 17-20 inches long, depending on how many layers of petals you want your flower to have. Leave the edges raw.
Sew a basting stitch down one edge of the fabric strip.
Pull one end of the thread to begin gathering the fabric. Once it is gathered to your liking, tie of the ends.
Coil the fabric to create layers of petals. The gathered fabric will naturally want to do this.
It's time to assemble the flower. Choose a button or bead for the center of your flower. Next, glue each end of the strip where you want them to secure the petals.
