So, here goes it! I'm going to show you how to make a super simple flower that I'm sure I saw on a blog and I have no idea where because you're all so talented, so I'm not going to take full-credit for this, but take heart and have fun!
Lisa, this one's for you my gal ;)
Choose some fabric and cut or tear a 2.5", or so strip.
Find a piece of felt and cut a medium circle. I eyeball everything, so I just cut this out with my eyeball.That doesn't sound right, does it...
Set the circle aside
Get some great fabric or wide, wide ribbon
|Fabric: Hot Chocolate|
Tie a knot at one end
Twist the fabric around the knot and while twisting add glue. You can use fabric glue. I used Elmer. Elmer and I have been friends for many school years! Keep twisting and keep twisting, around and around...
|Depending on how much fabric you cut you can make your flower as big as you like .|
Now take the felt circle and add Elmer.
Then add the flower on top of the glue and press. (count to 10)
Then, find a button and add a button in the middle of your flower.
It still looks wet, but when it dries the wet look disappears and it's a solid hold.
With a hot glue gun add a fabric pin to the back of the felt circle. I don't have one of those yet!
Then SO PRETTY! Your Hot Chocolate flower is done! Put it on a sweater, coat, add it to a headband...
