Scissors-small ones are best for the corners, but big ones are best for thicker fabric
Glue gun or fabric glue if you like
Button to cover, or just a regular button
Felt- just a small piece
These are the supplies I will be using.
I use these from time to time, but this one will be a smaller slide clip.
This is the slide clip I will be using. Normally I would do both the clip and the pin, but I will not for this particular flower.
Fabric covered buttons are my favorite to use normally.
Plastic button work just as well, and that is actually what I will be using on this one.
Its best to match the thread as much as possible to the fabric to blend better.
Once you have printed the flower template, cut out the two pieces. Do NOT cut along the dotted lines just yet. The large flower will be used twice and the smaller flower will be used 4 times. I will be using the smaller template 2 additional times to add some detail.
Clip the hair clip to the felt piece and then use the glue gun to glue one side of the clip to the felt.
TIP: If you were also adding a pin back I would suggest sewing the pin to the felt as well as gluing it into place. This allows it to be more secure.
Your fabric flower is now finished! This project takes very little time or effort, which is why I love it and use it so often. This particular clip is going to be for my headbands. (but it can be used as just a hair clip, clip to clothing, or even clip it on a pair of shoes)
I have made several of these flowers. I made a set of them to wear on a cardigan for Christmas this year.
