Shabby Chic Flower

I wanted to share with you how I made these cute flowers.  They are perfect for hair clips, headbands or to dress up a gift.  They are extremely easy to make and do not take long at all!

~ Fabric
~ Scissors
~ Needle and Thread
~ Hot Glue
~ An embellishment of sorts

Step One
Rip a strip of fabric. It can be any length and width you would like.  Mine was probably about an inch wide by 28 inches long. Just remember that the width will be the size of your flower.

Step Two
On the side that is not frayed, baste stitch across.  Do not cut your thread.

Pull together.  It should look like the image below.

Step Three
Flip you flower upside down and pinch the right sides together.

 Begin sewing your ends together.  Knot and cut your thread.

Step Four
Hot glue your embellishment in the center.

I Am Still Here

I feel as though I have forsaken my little blog lately.  Don't worry gals, I am still here!
So I bought an iPad a week ago and I am trying to get all set up on that.  There is a lot to learn.
And believe it or not, Blogger doesn't work too well on it.  So I am trying to figure some things out.    Also, editing images!  That is another whirlwind!  So many apps, but only certain ones work, where to save your work and so get the idea.  But other than that, I am enjoying the iPad.  It's great!

I can't believe that fall is here already.  Summer flew by so fast.  I created a short video on Vimeo that I was suppose to share a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't :( You can go on over and check it out here
