Sheer Flower Tutorial

Remember this pacifier clip from last week?
Well today I'm showing you how to make the sweet lil flower on it. 

Supplies Needed:

Small Piece of Sheer Fabric
Needle and Matching Thread
A Felt Ball, Button, or Bead

Using sheer fabric (I just grabbed a lil piece from my scrap bin),
 cut out 5 small petals about 1 1/2" tall.

For the center, you can use a button, a bead, or a felt ball.
I did a felt ball tutorial here yesterday.
 Using a paint brush or your fingers, smear a little bit of fray check
onto all edges of each petal.
 Don't get too carried away with the stuff, 
or your edges will be really stiff and glossy!
  Using a needle and thread, sew along the bottom of each petal
a small stitch, a large stitch, and then another small stitch as shown.
Continue the same pattern of stitching through all the petals 
and pull the string tight so the petals are all together...
Sew the first and last petals together making a circle of the thread.
Then sew your ball into the center of the flower, 
going down through the flower and back up 
as you would sew on a button. 
 Knot your thread in the back, and that is all! 
This flower is cute on lots of things.
You could sew it onto a pacifier clip like I did, or hot glue it onto a
hair clip or pin. You could use it as a gift topper, or on a headband.
So many ideas... :)

Have fun! :)
