A spunky little flower…

I added one to my daughter's hat. So adorable!

Start with 4 strips of tulle one inch wide by 30 inches long. I folded each strip in half 2 times just to save time on stitching. You could leave it unfolded and the flower would look the same. The tulle tends to catch and tangle on itself so I like to work with shorter strips.

Thread a needle with matching thread and tie a knot at the end of one strip.

Weave through the tulle with the needle. When you reach the end of one strip, start with another. Cinch the tulle as you go.

Cinch it tightly. Sew the end to the beginning and tie a knot.

Once you close the loop it will look like the one on the left. Separate the tulle pieces and you will get a fuller effect like the one on the right.

The Real Deal: It cost me less than $0.25 to make one flower.

Go and be pretty,
