I thought I'd share my latest creations with you. I've pinned a lot of ideas on my Hair Accessories and Fabric Flowers boards on Pinterest and have just been going through the list and trying out all that I have the time and supplies for.
I started using 1/8" elastic and gluing the accessories to the elastic, but at the rate I was making flowers, I realized I would soon be out of elastic. So, I created one universal elastic band and started hot gluing the accessories to mini alligator clips. That way I can just change the accessory and keep the same band. I know, I know, genius right?!?
I recently purchased an envelope full of fabric scraps from Jess at Craftiness is Not Optional and have enjoyed using scraps from her to create some of the accessories. I love that I can use just a little left-over fabric to create a cute little addition to my look! Last weekend, I made one (top right corner) using the left over fabric from Cupcake's birthday outfits (more on that in another post) to coordinate with her during the party!

Today, I tried out a tutorial from Nature's Heirloom that I absolutely love!! She guest posted the tutorial here. I changed the way she created it a little, using an old t-shirt. Using a t-shirt you don't have to worry about fraying and I like the way it rolls in after you stretch it out a bit. They are so easy to make and so cute! I've made two so far and look great on both Cupcake and myself.
