I have been seeing these cute flowers on different blogs lately, so I took some scraps from an outfit that was made for Angel baby and made this one. I love it!! They are so much fun and easy to do. I took different scraps and places them together according to color. Then I sewed them together, end to end. After that, I folded the strip in half and zig-zagged all the open edges. Then I gathered the material with a running stitch--some tutorials I read used their machines by changing the stitch length and tension, I just did it by hand. I started at one end and folded it over and then continued to form a circle around the center until I used all the strip of fabric. I just kept stitching each layer to the next. I tucked the tail of the strip into the back of the flower and covered the raw edges with a scrap of felt. You can hot glue a hair clip or a broach pin on the back of the felt and use it for whatever one you like best. This one has a hair clip to go in her hair or on a headband. I am not really good at directions, so if you have any questions, please ask and I am better at answering than describing. Oldest son is on his way in from hunting in Montana, so please add him to your prayers tonight and tomorrow for a safe flight. He got an early flight tonight instead of tomorrow, but is on layover in Denver and on standby. I sure hope he gets in tonight. Ya'll take care. Be happy, safe and healthy. Hug those you love, and most of all God bless ya'll!!!
