Here is a cute idea I came across while glogging at blogs....
Pretty simple and cute and makes me rethink ANY

little scraps of fabric I might think of tossing!!!

So here is my first to make these cute-easy, flowers.

Get out your scraps of cotton, silk or cotton poly prints.

and then tear them into 1 1/2" to 1 inch strips of varying lengths.

Cut out a few circles of your spare felt, in a neutral color. Do several different sizes no larger than 1 1/2" in diameter.

Heat up the ole glue gun and then take your first strip and tie a knot in the end. No fancy smancy...just a good old knot.

Pull it to the end of the strip and then glue it in the center of the felt circle. Smash it down. This is the center of the flower.

Now just roll the fabric into a tube and twist it as you glue around the center...

Continue this process, twisting and glueing all the way around trying to get the right side of the fabric to show.

When you have filled the whole felt, clip off the end and glue the tail behind on the back.

Aren't they just cute? I then just grabbed a spare dollar store headband and hot glued them right on molding them just a bit to curve over the band so they don't stick up.

Then I found my cutest girl to model them for me....cute huh???
