Flower Pins

Here is another project that I've been working on.  I had the flowers done about a week ago, but didn't have any pins for the back of them.  So I couldn't attach them to my diaper bag.

Here's how I did it.  I used leftover material from Ella's Sweater Dress.  I used this flower pattern from Wise Craft.  I used two big flowers, one small flower and then I cut another flower that was just a little smaller than the small flower pattern.  I also cut out a tiny flower that was just bigger than the button I used to assemble the whole flower.  Since I was using sweater material and it's chunkier I didn't follow the directions given on the Wise Craft tutorial.  I just layered the flowers from big to small and then sewed the button in the middle to hold it all together.  I hot glued a pin on the back so that I could attach it to my bag without it being permanent.  I might want to use the flowers elsewhere as well.  Maybe a scarf, another bag, or a sweater.  Who knows?  So I didn't want it to be permanent.  Anyways, it came out cute I think.  Now I want to make more so that I can have a whole flower collection. :)

I'm a creative cat over at:


  1. Hey I just came across your cute blog somehow. I just love how creative you are. Can't believe you made a sweater dress out of an old sweater. How cool is that. I also love that Wise Craft website, I checked it out, was excited about all the fun ideas. Anyway, I recently started a new blog, hoping to connect with other moms and gather advice and information. Feel free to check it out, and leave me comments of advice or opinions :)

  2. These are great!!

    Would love cream on my new cream hat.

  3. I was just working on my hand made flowers;). Thanks for giving me props on my paper cup craft:). So funny that my craft is paper cups hanging on a ribbon. It makes me laugh at myself. One day maybe I'll enjoy doing a real craft. Problem with me is I have zero patience!

  4. These are so pretty!! I'm so excited that you want to do a giveaway on my blog with them!! I'm wishing I had a chance to win them! lol

  5. I'm so glad you linked!! I totally love those flowers. They are so cute. I've been looking for something like that for some bags I'm putting together for the kiddos. I really like yours...a lot!!!
