I am working through my scraps stash and going to use this particular "flower" to decorate a tote bag, but it could be used for barrettes, pins or statement necklace.
- Soda Can
- Scrap of felt
- Scrap of burlap or heavy textured fabric
- Scrap of coordinating solid fabric
- Scrap of coordinating lace or netting
- Decorative stone or button
- Seam gauge or ruler
- Nail Polish (optional)
Using the seam gauge or ruler, measure out 1/4 inch from the edge on the burlap or textured fabric then cut out. Glue together - the felt circle will be the base.
For the next layer on top of the textured fabric, use the soda can to draw a circle and cut out. Reduce1/4 inch off the edges after drawing using the seam gauge or ruler. To make it easier I folded it in half then a quarter, measured then cut. Glue on top of the textured fabric with a glue gun.
Repeat with the netting or lace, except this time I trimmed off 1/2 inch from the edge(keep - will use around the stone). Use the hot glue gun to glue it down.
I wanted to soften the look up a bit, so I used nail polish and painted the decorative stone to soften the look up. Glue the stone to the center of the flower.
On the piece of netting/lace trimmed off above fold it in half, glue it around the stone.
