TUTORIAL - mum clip V2

I have a few different versions of the original mum clip, I like them all so much I'm going to try to give a tutorial for each of them. Today you get The Mum Clip V2. :D
The supplies are basically the same as last time:
  1. Old tee shirt scraps {or any fabric}
  2. Some Lace {I used an old curtain}
  3. Template {you have to make it yourself. Or you can try to find some clip art to use as a template.}
  4. Sharpie
  5. Hot glue gun and sticks
  6. Small circle of felt.
  7. Hair Clip {or brooch.. whatever you want.}
  8. CREATIVITY. You don't have to follow my exact directions. Do what you want, make it your own.
First get your template and trace it onto your fabrics. You will need 9 of each fabric.

{piles of 9 'flowers')

Glue 8 of the 'flowers' into 'petals' like last time. Cut a circle of felt.
Glue 4 'petals' onto the felt circle like so:
Glue the next four over the 'cracks'. 
{does that make sense?} 
Create a center by rolling up one of the 'petals'. Cut off the tip and glue in the middle. Now glue the tops of the last layer of petals to the center.
You're done! now you can glue it to a pin or hair clip or even a magnet. Just have fun with it. You could sew it together too. I think that actually works better and It's less stiff if you sew it, but gluing is easier. :D Try making a Huge on and sewing it to a pillow, or a miniature one for earrings! The possibilities are endless!
I'll be back with more tutorials soon! thanks for reading, and let me know if you make one!

{if you really like this you'll follow me *wink wink*}

gorgeous! i almost like it as much as the first one! at first i was wondering what you made that out of, because in the gray color i thought it was some woven material & i was thinking, 'what is that? a threadbare dish towel? (i may or may not have a towel like that, cough)' in color it's really beautiful. and i'm working buton my post. hopefully it'll be ready by next week, or the week after :) i think i gave you my email on pinterest, if not just tell me

Cool flower clip. There are so many variations on the web at the moment. I like the rolled centre - gives it a bit more variation. :)

Love your tutorial! I just made one for myself in red and white and am now thinking I'll have to make some mini ones to embellish a plain pair of shoes I recently bought. :)
