These hair accessories are so sweet and easy to make! Instructions are included to make two styles. The three dimensional petals can be combined in groups of two, three, four, five or six to create an assortment of different flowers. The small & large petal shapes can be used to make small & large flowers or they can be stacked to create more dimensional flowers. The circle flower shapes & leaves come in two sizes that can be used separately to make small and large flowers or they can be stacked to make a layered design. Ribbon bows & leaves along with buttons, rhinestones, pompoms, etc. can also be attached to the flowers.
The sample flowers and leaves are made from cotton fabric and acrylic felt. Dressier fabrics, like satin and taffeta, can be used to make fancier flowers - wool felt can be used in place of acrylic felt. The felt lining is fused to the fabric. Then the shapes are cut out and stitched around the edges - machine straight stitch and blanket stitch were used for samples (or shapes can be hand embroidered around the edges). Buttons, pompoms rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, feathers, etc. can be sewn/glued to center of flowers. The flowers can be made by machine with a small amount of hand sewing or completely by hand. Patterns can be reduced or enlarged to make flowers and leaves different sizes. The finished flowers can be attached to headbands, hair clips, hair scrunchies, purses, clothing, etc.
