This flower pin makes a wonderful brooch or scarf pin and can be made using recycled fabric. This one is made from an old skirt hem.
Take your fabric and cut out a 5 petal flower.
Use your sewing machine with matching thread and sew around all the edges. (this is optional)
Use your scissors or a hole punch to punch a hole into the middle of the flower.
Take your jewelry wire and cut 5 1 inch (2.5cm) lengths.
Thread the seed beads onto each length and push through the centre hole in the flower. Push through some feathers for a decorative effect.
Bend the wires securely at the back of the flower.
Cover the wires with a small piece of felt or scrap fabric.
Glue on your brooch back , hair band or pin.
