One of the things I made to sell at craft fairs and on Etsy are these fabric flower pins. I love the ragged edges and the little pop of sparkle from the rhinestone buttons. I wear one on the lapel of my jean jacket. They can be used anywhere you can pin them to.
Finally I hot glue a pin or bobby pin back to each flower. They can also be left with no backing so they can be glued to anything.
They are fun on purses, collars, aprons, headbands and whatever else you can dream up.
So far I have made them in natural drop cloth, blue and red.
More colors will be coming soon.
I use drop cloth canvas that I have specially washed as the backdrop for all these flower pins.
The colored flowers also have a layer of home dec fabric as the top petals.
I tear fabric squares until my hands ache. Then I start with one square as the base to sew the petal to.
Using eight more squares, I fold them diagonally, twice to create my petals.
Then I sew them one by one onto the base and to each other, going around in circles.
I use these beautiful rhinestone buttons to add some sparkle.
I love wearing one on my vendor apron, also available in my Etsy store.
Some flowers, some bling, and I'm a happy girl!
