I did not sew a dress for Momo this weekend...because I had other things to do, like sewing a new curtain because Momo ripped the old one beyond repair :( But I used Momo's nap time to make some flower hair accessories.
Those are the same flowers I made last year in this post. I made them smaller this time, because I am not worried about Momo swallowing them as much as I used to (but I do still watch her).
They are actually knock-offs of the store-bought hair accessories. Here are the originals.
They are Japanese plum flower hair accessories.
They are staffed yo-yos shaped into flowers. That may be enough to explain how to make them, but I am documenting here just for fun.
Cut the fabric in circle.
Sew along the edge,
Fill with poly-fill and close the opening.
Turn over and shape it into a flower, by wrapping the thread around from the center. Depending on how much poly-fill is used, the second round of wrapping the thread may be necessary for puffy flower.
Add embellishment of your choice to the center of the flower. When I made the larger flowers last year, I used small pom-poms. This time I am using small beads.
When attaching to elastics, sew the elastic to the flower and then glue a small piece of felt over it.
I love those flower accessories made with Japanese fabrics, but those flowers can be cute with any fabrics. I made all those flowers with leftover scraps from my projects.
The blue flower was made with a circle 2 inch in diameter.
The pink one was made with a circle 2 3/4 inch in diameter.
Linking up to those fun parties.
