Thankfully, I had already documented this DIY tutorial and just needed to take modeling photos (consists of me in pajama bottoms standing in front of the bathroom mirror LOL) / organize the post. Flower pins / embellishments are cropping up again (the last I remember was from the Sex and the City days when Carrie sported one) and can be seen on Kerry, Really Petite, and PetiteXXS. Since I never know what to do with scrap fabric from past projects, I tried my hand at making a few flower pins.
See tutorial after the jump:
- Fabric of your choice - choose one that will either fray nicely or not fray at all
- Pin back
- Needle / thread
Cut 5 circles about 5" in diameter (the circle size is up to you on how big or small you want your flower to be).
Fold in half and then into thirds:
Take 4 of your folded circles and orient them like a plus sign. Secure with some well-placed stitches.
Place your 5th circle on the back and secure. Make sure that your bloom is properly formed by checking the front periodically and adding stitches as needed.
Sew on your pin backing and you're finished!
Another fabric flower tutorial can be found here that can also be made into a pin.
Here are 2 that I made - a smaller one in fuchsia and a larger one in red/white/black boucle (please excuse the dirty mirror).
