Giveaway Extended, Hair Flowers & Pins

Follow Me on Pinterest
The next item up for my Pinterest challenge are these cute fabric flowers that I made to match the skirts from Pinterest challenge #1.  My inspiration came from this site.

So quick and fun to make. My friend Sam and I enjoyed creating them. I think our granddaughters will agree, they are very cute. Now just to see the granddaughters in them. They all live so far away, the closest is in Seattle, a seven hour drive, makes for a sad Nanna.

Sam really didn't want her picture taken, but gotta do it. 

Single Layer

Jacinda has a really good tutorial so I didn't add one here.  I didn't use covered buttons, just regular buttons I already on hand.

Double Layer

 Also I did a variation and used two fabrics, making the larger layer from 2 1/2" circles.

I also decided to make some of these as pins for friends. I cut these 3" and double layered them with 2 1/2" circles for the top layer. In the center I used large buttons and vintage earrings to finish them off.

On the back I hot glued a piece of felt and then a pin back. I glued a smaller piece over the pin to finish it off.
I really enjoyed making these as you can see, I almost couldn't stop. This is a good way to use up some of the smaller scraps in your stash and make some great gifts as well. I am trying to use only items I already have on hand for my Pinterest Challenges and for this one I only had to buy the hair clips. I had a hard time finding them in our area, but finally found them at Sally's.

I decided I would give the lucky winner of my giveaway one of these pins, along with a few other items such as some of my organic lavender. Just choose which pin you would like. I am extending the giveaway until the end of July so just leave me a comment here and tell me which pin you would like if you win and make sure you follow me as well. And if you don't win and would like to purchase one, they are for sale in my etsy shop.

I am linking up at these great parties:
