Singer fabric flowers

So here’s what happened! I was working on a project with silk that was fraying quite a lot and wanted to try and see if lightly singeing the edge of the fabric will help me control the fraying and keep them out of my way while I work on my project. It totally did but as soon as I noticed how cool the edge of the fabric look when singed, these darling flower hair pins came to mind almost instantly!

Flower bobby pins

Cute hair pins

To make these adorable flower hair pins, you only need a few “magic ingredients”. If you’re a sewist in addition to a crafter, these are sure to be found in your sewing/craft room: fabric scraps, scissors, needle and thread plus some embellishments to decorate your hair pins. And as a girl, I’m sure you already have a bunch of hair pins laying around the house with not much use because they’re just so unappealing, right?

How to make flower hair pins?

  1. Cut out circles of different sizes from the fabric.
  2. Quickly run a lighter over the edges of each circle until it curls a little and changes color to a darker shade than the original.
  3. Stack a few circles of different sized, with the smaller sizes in the middle.
  4. With your needle and thread, hand stitch the middle, through all layers of petals.
  5. Embellish the center, inside the flower, using your glue gun (using a low heat gun is a better option)
  6. Glue a bobby pin to the back of the flower.
  7. Allow to dry over night before starting to wear these flower hair pins.
