It has been a long week. David was doing better, then all the sudden started to do worse. I think it is just wearing on him. And on me, I have to do a lot for him and getting up in the middle of the night and early morning to help him, lots of appointments (which I hate). But you know even in the midst of it all, I have need to create something. Maybe even more then normal. I even got my little front room silhouette Christmas tree done (I will share soon).
I decided this pretty beret needed a little something. I wanted to make a wool flower fast and easy. I hope you do to.
1, Cut two circles of fabric. I decided what size I wanted my pin to be and then made a circle a little smaller. I used wool and left the edges raw.
2. Take a circle and fold in in half, but with one side sticking out a little farther then the other and pin.
3. With a needle and thread, run a basting stitch through the fold and pull and gather. Keep running the needle through and pulling till you get the gather you like. Knot off thread.
4, You want the shorter front half of the circle gathered and the larger back half flat.
5, Gather the other circle and knot off.
6, Now sew the two gathered edges together and sew a button onto the center of the flower.
7, Sew a pin-back on and be done !!!!!
By the way be checking my blog, in a couple of days I will be having a give-away xoxoxo
