Just in case you missed it...here is the tutorial from my guest post over at Scraps and Scribbles from
the other day! There is a giveaway involved, so hop on over and check it out!
Lately, I have been working on sprucing up a plain cadet cap. I've seen these hats everywhere with rhinestone designs on them, but thought they would be so cute with some flowers on them!
There are tutorials all over blogland for making all kinds of fabric flowers. Here is one of my new favorites!
All you need is some fabric, a circle template (you can use a glass), needle and thread, a small piece of felt, and a button.
Start by making six circles and cutting them out.
Fold them in half once and then again.
Then take your needle and thread and run a long stitch across the raw edge.
Now pull it tight so that it gathers in the whole bottom of your petal! Tie a knot in your thread and do the same for the next five circles. I didn't even cut my thread in between petals. That way they are all sewn together at the end.
This is what it will look like with all six petals done and sewn together. Next glue your felt circle onto the back.
Find a cute button big enought to cover all of your raw edges and stitching and sew into place on the opposite side of your felt.
Next add a pin and/or hairclip to the back and you are done! You could even sew this right onto a purse or hat if you didn't want it to be interchangeable.
Now go make some cute flowers!
