Beautiful Flower Pins *Tutorial (DIY)

Beautiful Flower Pins (DIY) Tutorial!

 I made all of these to give out at my wedding shower to the people who helped out and people I love! I think I made about 15 total, ok here's how you make them ::

Start by choosing some pretty fabrics
Draw circles on the fabric, I used a solo cup and doubled the fabric, so when I cut it out I'd have double the circles.

 Then you go over to your ironing board, fold the circles in half & iron them, then cut carefully on the line, that you creased, to make your half circles.


 OK, so now those are ironed and cut.....
Then your going over to your sewing machine, your going to fold the halves into half and then sew along the edge you cut. *Make sure you put the good side of the fabric inside out (fold to the inside) then sew.
 If you look carefully in this picture, you can see just a short little line that I sewed. (Don't forget to back stitch a couple when you first start and at the end of each one) and you can just keep them all on a line together til the end. (Like a necklace.) lol.
Trim off your pieces of thread, and pop out your petals::

 Then you need to hand stitch the rest. I put 10 petals on the bottom, and 6 on the top. Once you pull tightly they should scrunch up to look like this. Then connect your starting petal to your finishing petal.
 After that, start your second flower which will have 6 petals, this one will be your top flower. Then sew the two flowers together.
 Then add a fun button of any sort for the middle!!
Almost done!!! then on the back side, I just took a small piece of fabric and got some pins from Hobby Lobby and hot glued them on!!

Waaalaa Finished project!!!
*Now you can wear this on your shirt, purse, or pin it on a cute pillow!

This is how I packaged them up!

  14. No matter how expensive catier rings are, they are for keeps. They are made from carefully selected and quality-made rolex datejust watches
    materials. Each stitch is made to perfection and each bag is completed with handcrafted gifts for girls accents that are sure to last. Although it is tempting to settle with cheaper replicas omega watches for sale and imitation, they easily show their colors. Instead of giving you pride, such bags will only embarrass you once louis vuitton outlet online glossy finish starts to wear off and reveal that you are carrying a hermes handbags online. Choosing authentic and genuine goods may cost you but it rewards you with chanel bag online that are practically works of art, which you can even pass on to your daughters or trendy miu miu hobo granddaughters in the years to come.
