One of the things I love about hairpieces is you can make them anywhere…. well, anywhere they sell felt. You should have seen me trying to describe “felt” to the fabric guys in Timor, that was hilarious. But in most places it is cheap and readily available as is a glue gun (I got a cute toile printed one yesterday). I made this flower right before we left Utah.
Um, no I did not crochet that awesome hat! A lady that works for with mom made all us girls matching hats, mine is a dusty blue seen HERE and Chloe’s is a deep purple. I thought they needed a little something something to finish them off so I went to work making a giant felt flower. I turned it into a clip so then I can use it however I like 😉 It was pretty easy, though cutting out the petals can give you a hand cramp 🙂 Evie was a fan and kept holding it to her head after I finished and asking if it was for her hair or Chloe’s.
I think that would engulf little Chloe’s noggin so for now it is all Evie’s ha! If you would like to make one follow right along!
What you need:
headband or clippy your choice
The pattern for the petal can be found HERE if you would rather just print that out, or you can easily make your own 🙂 How many you cut out depends on how large you want your flower to be. I used up half a square of felt of each color. Just cut out a bunch ha!
Now all you need to do is continue your circles overlapping each with the one before it. I then hid where they all came together with some jewels. You can then glue gun it to your fastener of choice 🙂
There you have it! So before you head off, I have a quick question. Is it just me or do you find it hard to be crafty when your house is a bomb? It is the stereotype that creative people are often sloppy and thrive in cluttered spaces. While it may be true that when I am in the midst of a project my workspace may be a mess but I can never seem to start a project if I am surrounded by a mess. I set out to do this post this morning but it took pretty much the entire morning to get our home in order to the point where I felt I could let the creative juices flow. Is that just me? Am I neurotic? Sometimes I think it is because I was so spoiled in Timor with a full time housekeeper so I got used to everything being in its place all the time. I was just wondering 🙂
