Now we come to today in the sewing saga that has put life on hold.
I have long meant to stop wearing boring bobby pins because they’re well, boring.
So today I made these flowers. Well, actually the little green and red one was yesterday and I cheated and used the hot glue gun because I wanted to make it fast enough to wear it to my friend’s piano concert at three. It took about 5 minutes with the hot glue.
The big pink flower at the top I did not make, but I’m thinking about taking it apart and doing something like what I did with the little one at the bottom with it.
This is the hot glued flower being worn to the concert.
This is the first flower that I sewed. It’s pinned in this picture and I’m choosing thread color.
This is the peach flower being sewn. You can see the thread color I chose in the lower right.
Messy, messy back.
And there they were: the first two flowers.
The peachish flower being worn.
And being worn another (better) way.
The green flower pinned and awaiting thread selection.
Green flower being sewn with the thread I chose in the lower right.
And the fake pearl in the center. . .
And then there were 3.
This one was a bit cheatey as I took apart a fake flower to get the plastic out of it and simply sewed it back together with a fake pearl in the center.
And that’s it for flowers. Well for today at least.
