Here is a fun tutorial that I shared over at Someday crafts this past week. In case you missed it here it is! :)
I got my inspiration from this cute shirt from Anthropology. It’s cute… but $70 for a shirt is not exactly in my budget! I decided it looked easy enough to replicate…however I thought I would make one for my baby girl (due in October) instead.
 I found these onesies on sale for under $2 at Wall mart and Old Navy. I thought they could use a little more “frill” for my little girl!
I started out with some satin and organza fabric. Any sheered fabric works great as well. I cut them in circles ranging from 4 in down to 1 inches. Cut them down in 1/2 in increments. They don’t need to be perfect circles. Once you have them all cut, stack them up until you have a good size flower.
Then comes the fun part! You’re going to grab a a lighter or a candle and light the edges with fire. Just make sure to go slowly so they don’t burn to fast. ** Using a lighter will help not turn the edges so black.**
Once you have burned the edges they will curl up. Stack them with hot glue until you have a big full flower. Then add a rhinestone in the middle for a little extra bling.
Next your going to hot glue a velcro dot to the back. This way you can remove the flower when washing the shirt and use it as a hair flower as well.
Figure out where you want the flowers to lay on the shirt and add velcro dots.
Make sure to use sew tac when gluing the velcro to the shirt. This way when you wash it the velcro won’t fall off, and it will have an extra strong hold. Let it dry for a few hours before putting the flowers on.
Once the velcro has dried you can apply the flowers. I also add a little satin to the top of the shirt. I love how it turned out and can’t wait to put it on my baby girl!!

I also love that it has the velcro dots so you can interchange the flowers.

 Add a velcro dot with some hot glue to a head band or alligator clip and you can use the flower as a hair piece! You could really add the velcro dots anywhere… your flip flops, a purse….even a lamp! Get creative!
I love it on both shirts, but I think the white is my favorite with the fun headband!
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial, I hope you’ll all try it out!

    Velcro on the hair clip! Love it 'cause I was just thinking I needed to buy a whole bunch of hair clips for all the flowers and bows I want to make. Duh! Thanks for the brilliant idea! :) Your little girl is going to look darling in these!

    Cute, Cute, Cute! Looks so darn easy, too. I'll be giving this one a try…for me of course, cause I don't think my 22, 17, and 11 year old sons would wear a ruffled flower!!
    Thanks for the step by step tutorial!
    Fondly,

    That is adorable! I'm going to have to try one for my big girl (she's six). Just started following your blog and was thrilled to find another leap year blogger. I loved how you said you celebrate all week long because that's exactly what I do. When you don't have a birthday, you can have as many as you want! ;)

    This turned out beautifully. What a great idea for utilizing onesies you may not be so fond of!

    Hi! I tried these flowers a few months ago and just was wondering how you did the satin without burning it?! Mine turns black VERY quickly, and I'm just holding it over the flame, not actually in the flame. Also, my organza seems to curl up a lot more than yours. Any ideas why?

    Thanks for your help!
