Fabric Flowers Pin

Good Morning,

I finally took out my Stampin' Up! flower fold die and made these fabric pins that I saw all over the blog land a while ago.

I used the two smallest flowers on the die.  I don't have many buttons or brad so I made the fabric buttons for the flower center except for the blue one.

To make the fabric cover button:

Just a small piece of fabric scrap.  I dabbed a little hot glue so the button stayed in place.

cut around the button like this

stitches it and pull the stitch together

flip the button over and there you got the coordinated button.  I used hot glue to glue the button to the flower center.  Sorry the last picture didn't come out so good but you got the idea.

I am going to link this to Make It Monday.

Thanks for looking.
