Happy St. Paddy’s Day from The Sunday Sparkle!
The other day I was going through my closet when I was creating this project and as I was color coordinating my closet and new clothing rack I realized I had no green clothing. Irony, I don’t have a dislike for green, but somehow not a green thread in my closet. I guess a shopping trip for a new green frock is in order. However, for St. Paddy’s Day I thought about accenting my wardrobe with a versatile accessory that I can wear as a brooch, hair pin, belt, or necklace. I found some vintage fabric in my fabric scrap bin and whipped up a flower in under 10 minutes.
- A dime size of felt
- Hot Glue Gun
Cut fabric into 12-20 circles. I created 2 1/2″ circles. Thread your needle and begin adding fabric by folding in half and then in half again, so you have small pie shape pieces of fabric. Then thread the tip of fabric, continue until you have your desired amount of flower size. You will want a pretty full fabric flower. Take the two ends of thread and simply tie a knot. Take your felt circle and hot glue your fabric flower to the felt. This will create a base. You can now use your flower for anything. Glue to hair band, a pin for a brooch, vase, or belt, the options are endless.
