DIY flower pin

I found this DIY flower pin over on Project Wedding and decided to try it out. I love love love fabric flowers, and can't wait to make more! I can see these being used for headbands, pillows, t-shirt embellishment... you name it.

My version:

I didn't have any chiffon on hand, so I simply used a bunch of tulle and some pink cotton thrown in the mix. The cotton is definitely not as light and airy as chiffon would be, but it worked out alright.

I also used a button instead of beads, but I can't wait to try out different options and combinations: seed beads, pearls, sequins, fringe... Along with different colors and sizes.

For my first attempt, I'm pretty happy!

If you'd like some more flower-making options, you can try out these rose and peony templates from Martha Stewart.
