Since I’m on the topic of hair do-dads, I thought I’d share this project with y’all too.
Remember this dress?
(source) And these shoes?
Well, I ordered some linen swatches from NY Fashion Center Fabrics. What lovely fabric!! The color Citron matched my shoes perfectly! So, I ordered a yard of Citron colored linen and got started!
First I cut an 8 inch strip off of my linen. I only did this for ease. Honestly, a yard was way too much fabric; this project could be done with just scraps. Then I freehanded (or cut, rather) 17 circles of various sizes. I stacked them from largest to smallest in three piles, two of 6 and one of 5.
Then I sewed them together and beaded them. The beads I bought weren’t really meant for beading, so the holes in them were really, really tiny, and beading became a miserable nightmare. But, it’s done now.
Then I sewed them together using just the bottom layer. I then cut out a piece of the linen that would cover the stitches. I attached a clip and then sewed my scrap fabric on the back of the flowers.
Here’s the final result:
So, what do y’all think?
