I love to have something festive to wear on the 4Th of July. In the past my girls and I have made read, white, and blue flower hair clips. This year I wanted to try something a little different, so I made each one of my girls a bib necklace and a brooch for myself. They all vary slightly.
For the brooch below, I added a little brooch pin by hot gluing it to the felt backing of the flowers.
See here for a rolled flower tutorial.
I used ribbon instead of fabric. I have no frayed edges on my
flowers.When I start my rolled flowers I always tie a knot at the end
and wrap my ribbon around it.
See here for a tutorial on how to make a bib necklace.
I would have done the tutorials myself, but I injured my knee pretty badly and everything is taking so much longer to accomplish.
