This is my version of the fabric flower clip. I am sure that this has been done before but I thought of this while I was doing dishes the other day. (and by doing dishes, I really mean watching my son unload the dishwasher while cutting out fabric.)
Everything you need to complete this project is seen here
Liquid starch, 1/8 yard fabric, felt, button, hair clip, needle and thread, aluminum foil and glue gun.
Cut 8 of the same shaped flowers. One of each style is show here. You could just do circles if you want to keep it simple. Also cut out your felt circles for the back of the finished flower. If I am attaching the flower to a clip, I like to cut a small slit.
I like my fabric stiff so if you don't, you can skip this part and the next. Put the flowers in liquid starch, coat each piece and squeeze the excess out.
Crumple up a square of aluminum foil to lay the flowers on to dry. I found use for my dryer's shoe/hat rack. My flowers dry in 5 mins this way.
When they are dry, it is time to fold them. Fold it in half three times. I like to fold one flower, then thread it. Do this 8 times.
After your last flower is threaded, thread the first folded flower on again. Pull the thread tight and then knot it.
If you are doing a clip, slip the clip into the felt and glue them to the bottom of the flower. If you are doing a head band, glue 1 felt circle to the head band and one to the flower. Then, glue the two of the together.
Add your favorite centerpiece to the middle and TADA! Let's look at them again shall we?
