Fabric Flower.

With one day to go to a friend’s wedding I thought I should perhaps put a little colour into my outfit. I liked the idea of putting something in my hair but where to start. Google images. It is the place I go to for inspiration on a desired project. I suppose it is a bit like pinterest but I have yet to delve into yet another cyber outlet that can otherwise consume more of my time.

Anyways in my trawling through the photos I came across this tutorial on a flower collar by Katiedid. Very cute indeed.

I turned this great idea into a hair clip.

I ended up using light weight jersey, put a circle of felt on the reverse with a hair clip to attach. I am also thinking of adding a brooch pin. 

I am really pleased with how it turned out. As I had left it to the last minute to make I needed to make it right first time. In the end the wedding was beautiful and I wish the happy couple all the best in the future.

  1. That’s gorgeous, what a lovely way to add a pretty and unique twist to an outfit! Your hair clip is a lovely take on the tutorial. The colour fabric you chose is fab too, what colour was your dress? I might have to play around with this idea too… x

    • Hi Bianca,
      I really like grey in all its tones. My dress was black. Not the best wedding dress but its all that I had (a great bargain buy from the op shop). Cost of total outfit and hair accessory $5.
