1 Corinthians 13:13

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Felt Flower Hair Clip

Felt Flower Hair Clip
Cardboard, card stock or plastic template
Fabric marker
Embroidery floss
Embroidery needle
Felt (used felt pieces from Walmart 4 pieces for $1)
Alligator hair clip or pin backing

Make a flower petal template cut out of cardboard, card stock or plastic template- there is no right or wrong on the shape of your flower petal.
Using your fabric marker trace 20-25 flower petals onto your piece of felt. Amount of flower petals depends on how full you would like your flower to be.

Cut out flower petals- you can either trim away the marker lines or leave them on.
Cut a piece of embroidery floss about 1.5 feet long- thread floss onto to embroidery needle.
Make a running stitch into the bottom of the flower petal-string all of the flower petals onto the embroidery floss in the same stitching manner.

With all of the flower petals laying in the same direction- pull both ends of your embroidery floss to snug up all of the running stitches- tie floss into a knot once snugged up.

Trim off the ends of the embroidery floss.Turn flower over and fluff petals into desired shape.
You may need to add a small dot of hot glue to the center of your flower depending on how tight you were able to pull your petals before tying the embroidery floss into a knot.
Cut out a small felt circle for the back of your flower. Hot glue the felt circle onto your flower.
Place a small line of hot glue on top of your felt circle. Add Alligator hair clip or pin backing to your flower.

 Here is another felt flower that I left the marker outline on.
