Blog Swap with Pretty lil’ Posies

Hi, I am Kelli from Pretty Lil’ Posies and I am so excited to be here!  Like Amy, I have a little girl that I love to craft for.  I am loving all the adorable things Amy has made for her daughter!  I just started my blog at the end of August so I am new to the craft blog world and I can’t wait to show you all the ideas I have spinning in my head.

Need to add some sass to your little lady’s hair?  A couple of these should do the trick…

Gather your supplies:
-2 small felt squares, one slightly bigger than the other (mine measured 2″ squared and 1 3/4″ squared)
-one piece of, 3/8″ wide ribbon cut to 3 1/2” long (grosgrain ribbon works well)
-some sort of “bling” for the middle of your flower (I used a rhinestone)
-double prong alligator clip (you can get these for pretty cheap at beauty supply stores, I found mine at Sally’s I got 100 clips for about $5.00)
-candle
-lighter
-scissors
-hot glue gun
-hot glue
-non slip shelf liner, optional (I got mine at the dollar store)

1-Heat seal your ribbon (to prevent fraying) by running the ends through the flame of your candle.
2-Sandwich your ribbon between the prongs of your clip, right side facing down.
3-Run a string of hot glue on top of the prong where the ribbon is.
4-Quickly fold the ribbon up and over the top prong.  Pinch the ribbon together to smooth out the glue.  Be careful, the glue is hot!  Remove any excess glue.
5-Continue gluing on ribbon and smoothing it out as you go.  Do just a little bit at a time until you reach the end of your ribbon.
6-Round the corners of your felt, forming two circles.  It doesn’t need to be perfect.
7-Cut a slit in the middle as shown in picture.
8-Cut a slit on the opossite side of your last one.  Do the same to the other side.  You will end up with 4 slits.
9-Round all the corners.  This forms your petals.
10-Glue it all together.  Make sure your smaller flower is on top.
11-Glue your flower onto the center of your clip and now you’re done!….unless you want to add some “no slip grip” if you’re making this for a little lady with fine hair.

12- cut a rectangle of your shelf liner slightly smaller than the base of your clip.
13-Glue on the shelf liner to the back of the top of your clip.
14-Now you are done!  It can now grip onto the finest of baby hair, even a single piece of thread.
15-Repeat steps 1-14 and attach to some cute pigtails.  I love those little whale spouts!

I also made a pair of these to match an “I Scream” onsie I made.

A tutorial and pattern for the “i scream” shirt is available on my blog.  On my blog you will also find a little bit of everything like…

and of course some good old before and afters!
