{Flower pin}

Well I told you I was starting a new obsession with fabric flowers........

This one is obviously a pin, but this one I tried a different method which you might have seen before............
You melt the edges of your fabric in a flame and the edges begin to curl and after you layer a few different size circles you end up with this lovely little flower!

{oh by the way......don't try to melt just any type of fabric.....it has to be a silky material or else it will start on fire......and yes, I am speaking from experience!}

I also wanted to show you the t-shirt I had on in the picture, because it is one of my favorites!
If you have never heard of them, they are called Bee-tees {here is their website}, and each t-shirt design has a inspiring saying on it:


Aren't they adorable? I would love to have every single one!
They are not only great reminders for me, but for everyone who sees me!

Hope you will give the flower a try, it really is a beautiful result especially with some little beads in the center and some cute leaves!

Have a lovely day!
