SUNFLOWER FASCINATOR

 
This was made with scraps and leftovers from other projects. Items needed:
  • Fabric
  • Button
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Glue Stick
  • Hair Clip
 
Cut 12 petal shapes - sort of like an Conehead Easter Egg shape - into the fabric (I folded my fabric over several times then cut several shapes at once).  Note: The button that I used for this project in the picture below is a DIY Dorset button made out of the plastic ring off of a milk jug and scrap of fabric. The tutorial is here: http://craftsandcreationswithkathy.blogspot.com/2009/04/diy-fabric-buttons.html

Fan out into a basic flower shape with 6 of the petals, then put the other six petal in between the lower layer of petals.

Hand stitch the petals together at the base all the way around until you come back to the first petal, then pull the thread taut to pull all petals towards the center.

Stitch the button to the flower. Use the hot glue gun to glue the hair clip to the back of the fascinator.

I made this awhile back, but I am linking it up on  Blue Cricket Design's "Show and Tell" Wednesdays as we could all use a little bit of Spring in our lives and I always think of Spring when I see sunflowers.   There are lots of other cool projects linked up - click over on the hyperlink to check them out and happy crafting!
