Step 1: Cut Lace

Cut a 4 foot length of lace. Using your needle and thread, tightly gather one side of the lace.
Note: If your lace has an unfinished side or is pre-gathered, stitch along this edge. Even if it is pre-gathered you want to gather the lace as much as you can.

Step 2: Print Pattern

Print out the Doily Lace Flower backer pattern. Cut out one of the shapes from the felt (Use the scale to make sure the print out is the correct size)

Step 3: Sew Lace

Using the 1.75" felt circle as a base, start to sew the gathered edge of the lace to felt. Make sure to start on the outside, wrapping the lace around and towards the center.

Step 4: Sew Buttons

Sew buttons to the center of the flower. I used two medium sized buttons and stacked them to create my flower's center.

Step 5: Sew on Pin

Take the 2" felt circle and sew on the pin. If you plan to add a pin and a gator clip make sure your pin is sewn slightly off center allowing space for the gator clip.

Step 6: Glue Gator Clip

Hot glue the gator clip next to the pin and finish off the back by hot gluing the felt heart over the back part of both the gator clip and pin.

Step 7: Glue Backer to Flower

Thank you so much for this! I made three variations for my friend's birthday :D
The first two are attached to pins. The third one with the ribbon is attached to a hair tie :)
