I then found some hot pink taffeta and began the transformation. Can you tell I have little girls? I mean, I just happen to have some hot pink taffeta hanging around. Then I cut my circles out and made sure they were ironed. (Later, I found out that the ironing step is really not that necessary depending on how you want your petals to look.)
After the petals are cut you simply use a lighter to burn the edges and the fabric will flip up nicely at the edges. Layer the petals, pop a jewel in the center, and voila, you have an adorable flower to put on anything you please. I used velcro dots to adhere mine to this shirt so that I could remove it for laundering. Also, when the shirt gets stained (as all white shirts do in my house) I can just place the flower on a new bright white one.
I then layered another flower with organza and made this precious hair clip. My daughter was so excited! She couldn't wait to show off her new hot pink doo at school!
I am going to be making these for every little girl I know! Isn't is too cute!
Just perfect for a rock star!
Isn't this is a sweet little girl!
Okay, then I thought to myself "I want one," so I found some black lining in the closet and began working more magic. The lining fabric curled up much nicer than the taffeta! I didn't have any organza for this one but I have since been to the store and my next one will be much fluffier!
Playing around with my camera! I love anything in black and white!
