A few weeks ago, I decided to wander through Dear Lizzie, a small boutique near my home, to look for Handmade Christmas gift ideas.

Right as I walked in the door, I spotted the perfect project.  It was a darling fabric flower pin, and I knew it would be easy to make at home.  Its a perfect gift for a friend, mother, sister, or even a teacher.  The flowers at Dear Lizzie sold for about $15 dollars, it cost me less than a dollar to make these.  And it was a quick project that took me less than half an hour.

Heres what you need for the project:

    * A small amount of fabric- scraps of fabric from a past project are perfect!
    * Light weight iron-on adhesive like Heat n Bond or Wonder Under
    * Wool Felt- just a small amount.  Again scraps from another project work great.
    * Buttons, large crystal beads, lace, tulle or any other embellishment you love.
    * A hair clip or a pin

Yay!  I need something like this for a bleach stencil recon I just did.  Went a little heavy with the bleach, so I need a quick cover up, and this is so perfect!  Can't wait to go try it.

I made a ton of these-- thanks so much for the tutorial. They work best with heavier fabric, for those just embarking.
