Hello friends. This week I made some flowers. Tim Holtz is having a challenge on his blog to make something using his Tattered Florals die. I thought I'd try making a hair clip or pin, so I pulled out some fabric and started cutting flowers with the die.
The first one I made has a lot of layers of flowers. I started with a circle for my base. Then I used the large flower to build some layers. I folded each flower into quarters and stitched across the folded corner with my sewing machine just to hold the folds.
Then I used a glue gun and glued four flowers onto the circle. I made three layers of the large flower, and two layers of the smaller flower. Then I tucked another layer in between the large and small flowers, so there was a smoother transition from large to small. In the center, I glued the smallest flower and a large flat back pearl. I'm going to finish it off with a pin back, but need to dig in my stash and find one.
The second flower I made is much simpler, just two layers of folded flowers and a single flower in the center with a button. This one is all sewn together on my machine. This one is a hair clip.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
