Want to know what I love best about summer?? It's gotta be the flowers!
In honour of the lovely flower, we have decided that we would spend this week indulging in our favourite flower inspired crafts!
Enter the funky flower barrette!
You'll have to trust me when I say it takes literally minutes to whip one up! And what a great gift for the little girls and funky mamas on your lists!
So get out your funky fabric...first things first, you'll need to make some templates...you will need 4 circle templates...starting big and decreasing in size. When I did this I just picked random things around my house to trace...you can make them whatever size you wish! My biggest circle is about 3.5 inches.
I always use contrasting fabric to make mine...I just think they look funky with all the mis matched patterns!
Put them together and see if you like it! If you do, on to step two!
Do a running stitch in a circle shape...in the middle of your first circle...
Do the same with all of your other circles...
Then pile them one on top of the other and put a button on top, (in the centre)...sew them all together!
