My 92-year old Grandma passed away this year in March. She loved her polyester blouses! We could not bear to throw them away; so, I decided to make flower pins out of them. I think of her each and every time I wear or look at one.
Hope this inspires you to create your own memory flowers and remember wonderful Grandmas, Moms, Sisters, and friends - or, just make some for fun.
Step 1: Materials Needed
- 100% polyester blouse
- Circle templates cut out of cardboard measuring different circumferences as seen in image.
Each circle contains five "snip" markings; - the markings for the circles vary in range from 3/4"
for the larger circles all the way down to 3/8" for the smallest circle. I never measure or mark
the snip markings - I randomly snip each circle five times.
- Sheet protectors (optional)
- Fire starter
- Pliers (not shown)
- Thread and needle
- Beads (not shown)
- 1 1/2" adhesive pin back (not shown)
