If your going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair....and don't forget your hatFriday, August 02, 2013
Fabric flowers are a great way to use up scraps and you can use them to embellish just about anything. Since I'm such a hippie...well my husband says so...I decided to make some flowers for my hair out of my Dear Stella fat quarter bundle.
There are tons of ways to make fabric flowers. I prefer these rolled ones because they are quick and easy. There are some good tutorials are here and here.
For my headband I bought some cheapies at the dollar store. I cut a 1 inch strip of fabric and twisted around the headband securing with a glue gun. I then placed my fabric flowers where I wanted securing with a hot glue gun. I secured the bottom of the flowers to the headband with scrap felt.
An easy way to jazz up a boring old headband.
I also embellished some hair clips and claws with fabric flowers. The hair claws can even double as a pin on a lapel.
Another accessory project I made for my Dear Stella/Kollabora challenge was a reversible bucket hat. I found a free pattern here. I slightly altered the pattern by shortening the sides a smidge, about 1/2 inch. I also made my own piping.

|Maybe if you can't see because of the sun you should put your brim down! doh!|
I'm not much of a hat person but I really like the way this turned out. I thought it would be nice to wear when I'm working out in the yard. I always feel hats look goofy on me. Are you a hat person?
I've got one last final project to submit to Kollabora. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, it's due tomorrow!! Blog post will have to wait until tomorrow. I gotta go catch some zzzz's. Nite y'all!
