I’m still without a laptop charger so posting from my phone again. I’ll catch up on my Me Made May posts when I have the computer and photoshop back up and running.
In the meantime here’s a little tutorial for a flower brooch/hair accessory which I’ve made a few times.
It’s a great way of using smaller bits of fabric from your stash.
You will need…
Some small bits of fabric
As well as a needle and thread, a pencil, a bowl or cup, some scissors and an iron.
Iron your fabric so it’s smooth, trace out 8 circles by drawing round your bowl, cut out circles.
Fold your circles twice and press them.
Gather the round edge and stitch together until you have 8 petals.
Stitch the petals together as tightly as you can in the middle.
Attach a button to the middle. You can then add a hair band or safety pin the back to finish your accessory.
These are one of my favourite things to make and make excellent gifts.
