adorable flowers

These are a bit fiddly to make but they are so cute. You can do almost anything with them from hair pins to rings to necklaces to jacket/hat pins.

And you can use up that bit of scrap fabric you can't bare to part with for that perfect project.

Well you just found it.

It looks like a long tutorial, but I've tried to get every step in there and as clear as possible.

You can see more pretty flowers on my blog :www.theaftercraft.blogspot.com/
