Flower Hair Accessories for Little Momo

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.
