Scrappy Fabric Hair Flowers

As I promised, today I am sharing the process I used to make these pretty fabric flowers that I made into ponytail holders and bobby pins for the female guests at Ella's Lemonade and Sunshine Social last weekend.

I had some scraps of fabric left over from my Scrappy Fabric Flag Garland. Some of it I used to decoarate the party favors, but the rest I wanted to use to make some sweet fabric flowers.

I loved the combination of fabrics, they were soft and sweet and evoked vintage (none of them are vintage.) First, I built the flowers using the method described in this tutorial.

It was pretty simple--just cut six circles from the fabric (I varied the fabrics in each of the pieces so they would be unique), fold each in quarters, run a needle with thread through the point in each folded circle, knot, fluff, and voila!

I attached them to bobby pins, sewed some to pony tail holders, and for this little sweetheart, affixed one to a wide pink ribbon. So cute!

It was such an easy project, and it made me smile every time I saw one on a guest!
