A couple of weeks ago I came up with this tutorial for Kaysi at Keeping it Simple while she was on maternity leave. Between all the fun Handmade Christmas stuff and a crazy hectic life I have never shared it with all of you. So, today is the day. It is a new little idea I came up with when someone had asked me to create some wedding clips. At the time I used some chiffon to make them...but today I am using cotton fabrics.They are pretty simple.
First grab you supplies. You will need some scrap fabric, needle and thread, scissors, a small piece of felt, hot glue, and a hair-clip.
There are two sizes you can make. I will show you both. The smallest one you cut a strip of fabric that is 3/4inch x 22 inches. For a little bit larger you cut 1inch x 30 (+)inch strip.
Then get your needle and thread and start gathering up the strip of fabric
After you have gathered the whole strip of fabric you are going to gather the fabric back and forth, bath and forth.
Then sew through all the bottom part to keep it together. Go through a number of times and then tie off the thread.
It should look like this when you turn it over. Isn't it cute. So small and fluffy. I love it.
Instead of gathering your fabric back and forth, and back and forth you could instead roll it up like this one. Then you would sew through the bottom just like the other one.
Either way when you are done you will turn it over to the bottom and add a small circle of felt. I hot glued mine on. Then I added a hair clip with hot glue too.
Pretty simple right? And super cute. I hope you all have fun making them! I know I am.
