This one is just taking a strip of fabric, twisting, and rolling into a circle, hot glue gunning along the way, and then adding a little bling to the middle. (an old earring I had)
For this one, I used Tidymom’s rosette flower pin tutorial. Basically it’s 4 circles of felt scrunched together, but she does an excellent job of explaining it.
For the pyro lovers out there, this one was the most fun to make. Cut a bunch of different sizes of circles, skim them along a candle flame, put a few stitches through the middle and there you go.
Put some stitches in the back to hold it. (No, don’t adjust your monitor: I.sewed.something!)
Roll up a small strip into a little cinnamon roll. I think a big wooden button would be fabulous as well.
Hot glue it in the center, spray it with some yummy perfume. Flowers are supposed to smell good! I smelled the most heavenly scent this weekend: Chanel Chance. Mmmmm.
and you’re ready for fall!
For the backs, you can use a standard pin: (mostly I am just showing this picture so you can admire my stitches)
An alligator clip to put on a purse, jacket, back behind pocket, on your dog’s collar, or in your hair:
Or, I have been known to use a good old safety pin to fasten it.
