A couple of weeks ago I shared a sweater and hat I knitted for the Little Lady. (Leaving Thursday for a week long visit :) I wanted a little embellishment for the hat, and I made a flower using the material that I will be using to make her 2 pairs of reversible pants. Although I sewed the flower directly on her hat, you could easily add a brooch pin so it could be removed. I'm a little leery of sharp pokey things on toddlers :)
To make your own Frayed Fabric Flower you will need:
woven fabric scraps
a copy of the pattern found HERE
brooch pin (optional)
Make a copy of the pattern. Cut out a woven print and matching felt for each of the three sizes.
Using a running stitch and 3 strands of floss, sew the woven fabric flowers to the corresponding felt flowers.
Stack the 3 flowers on top of each other with largest flower on the bottom and the smallest flower on top. Tack together.
Sew a button in the middle.
At this point, you can sew a brooch pin to the back of the flower or tack the flower to a garment.
Easy Peasy... all done :)
