These little cuties can be used in your hair, as a pin, you can use them to spice up a boring shirt or handbag, and you can even use them to make your own jewelry.
I realize this is kind of a girlie craft and I have all boys, but I just spent a week with my nieces. I think it is so fun to decorate those little girls then give them back to their mamas! :)
Oh, and if you guessed that we were on vacation in Yellowstone, you were right! It was tons of fun! Actually, I am just guessing that it was fun. We should still be on the road home by the time this post goes live. :)
Anyway, this is super easy. All you need for these little bobby pins are:
- small circles of fabric (any kind_
- bobby pins
- needle and thread
- super glue
Start by threading your needle. Hand stitch around the outer inside edge of your circle. Like so:
Make sure you go all the way around the circle.
Once you make a complete circle, cinch up the thread to bring the outer edges into the center. Do not cut the thread.
Take one of the buttons and hand sew it into the center of the flower.
Once the button is sewn on, still do not cut your thread. Turn the flower over and sew a bobby pin to the back of the flower. Just sew around the curve of the pin. If you sew it on this way (which is more sturdy) then the pin can only be used to slide into an already done hairstyle. If you want to use it as an actual bobby pin, sew the flower onto the top of the pin.
Knot the thread and NOW you can cut it! :)
Add a drop of super glue to the back for added security. You don’t want that cute little flower to unravel in your hair!
See how cute and fun?! Now you can make a bunch more!
You can also sew them to some elastic for a head band.
So cute. My sister-in-law and I sure had a fun day making hair bows for her little girlies!
…even though we did it all the way back in February! :)
Sigh…I sure wish they lived closer!
