Happy Hair Clips part 3


Here's the 3rd Clip in this series: "T-Shirt Blossoms"

Materials Needed: Old Knit T-shirts, hot glue, metal clip (alligator clip)

Steps: 
1. Fold a strip of knit fabric (about 4 inches wide) into 3-4 layers
2. Cut out a few stacks of different sizes of circles on the layered fabric
3. Cut a thin strip of fabric- about a 1/2 inch wide and 4 inches long
4. Make the little rosette bud for the middle by slowly rolling, twisting and glueing the fabric strip.
5. Put a small swirl of glue on each of the layers all the way up to the little rosette '
6. Glue on the metal clip

How to make the center of the blossom or the "rosette"
Start by folding and glueing one end
Gradually keep twisting and wrapping the fabric around the center glueing often. Keep the glue toward the bottom of the wrap to avoid extra glue squishing out through the top.

ta-Da!


Thank you, Madeline for being my model once again. ;)

Thank you so much. This is by far the easiest way to make these I have found! You rock! BTW...my glue gun looks exactly like the one in the pix here. Guess that is the sign of one happy crafter!!! Keep up the great work!
