Charming Hair Flower



  1. I used leftover fabric bits--the teeniest tiniest bits in my stash. They were all about one inch wide by 4 to 10 inches long. I didn't have enough of any one print, so I pulled several pieces of the same color but different prints together. This turned out to make quite a cool look. So to get started, first you will need to cut pointy "teeth" along one side of all your strips.

  2. Next you will run a simple basting stitch along the straight edge of your fabric. When you pull the fabric tight it will gather. I used some old cotton thread that I acquired from my mother.

  3. When you have as much gathered length as you think you will need, tie it off. Leave a length of thread hanging though in case you decide that you need to add more fabric. Now start rolling the fabric onto itself and repeatedly stitching through the base to keep it together.

  4. Once you're done, sew a few JBS Charms in the center! Sew Charming!

I love the way this flower looks. I just saw a purse today with a big flower like that on the front of it. I think I will make one.

Cute but how is it worn? Is it hot glued to a barrette or what?

I also wonder, as did casteach, what 'rolling the fabric onto itself' means. Is there a way to find out?
