Hello Craftsters!

Recently I've decided to try myself at making bobby pins with fabric flowers. I also plan to make something alike for ponytails holders.  What do you think of these?











Thanks for looking!

Thank you, guys!

They are all made of fabric, which I soak in jellatine. Actually, the whole process is described on my blog, so you are all wellcomed to visit it! The procedure takes some time, but it's really fun!

I use mostly thin fabric - satin, organza, or shiffon, though the flowers can be made of any fabric. Rougher one is a little bit harder to shape, but it keeps the shape better. However, I like the glossy and shiny looks of satin and organza.

Thank you once again, see more on my blog!
