Introduction: Fabric Flower Hair Clip

Step 1: What You Need

Needed Items
*scissors
*paper and 5 quarters (to make the template)
*lots of colors of felt (make sure you get yellow for the flower center)
*needle and thread
*hot glue gun
*hair clips, or pins for the backing

Step 2: Create Template

Make the template. You need a five petal flower. If like me, you can't freehand anything, quarters work greeeaat!

Step 3: Cut Out Pattern

Cut 4 flowers (per hair clip) and 2 yellow circles for the center.

Step 4: Create Flower

The Tough part. O.k, not really.
It's just like folding a cardboard box, but with felt, and fake petals.

Step 5: Create Flower Part 2

When its all folded, it should look like this...one half of each petal should be showing.

Step 6: Sew

Sew all petals together.

Step 7: Sew Yellow Circles

Sew both yellow circles together

Step 8: Sew Flower Center Onto Flower

Sew flower center onto flower.
Make sure to only sew through the first layer of the center.
You don't want to see the stitches.

Step 9: Hot Glue Backing On

Hot glue a hair clip or a pin to the back of the flower.

Step 10: Your Done!

Make a lot so they match all your outfits,
then wear them around and look so so cute.
