Sorry I've been gone so long, again. Between a six day visit from my in laws and having an new heater/air conditioner installed, well life's been busy. Now that things are finally settling down I plan to get some much needed crafting and blogging done. Thanks for your patience!
Today's tutorial is for this lovely spring flower hair clip. The weather has finally started to warm up and I'm thinking on all things spring. This clip looks much more complicated than it actually is, lucky you!
*Sorry for the picture quality, forgot to charge up my good camera*
First thing, gather your materials: A sheet of felt, I use regular eco felt most of the time, but decided to try the stiffened felt this time ( I like to finished look of the stiffened, but it's a pain to work with), you need a needle and thread the same color as your felt, scissors, a spring back clip, and hot glue or E6000.
Now pull your thread tight and "shape" the petals as you do so they gather in the right places. Either tie your two ends together or make a connecting stitch and tie it off. The finished should look like this.
Complete the remaining petals in the same fashion.
All that's left is to glue them together largest to smallest. Use pins if necessary to hold while the glue cools/dries. Once that's done flip it over and attach the spring back clip using the petals to hide it.
