Flower Hair Pin *FAIL*

    So I share all of the projects I'm proud of but here is one I was NOT proud of.  I had a diaper shower to attend so I bought the diapers but I wanted to put a little something extra with them and just like everyone else we are limited on funds.  But hey, I've been wanting to try a flower hair pin.  Well I saw a really neat tututorial of a star flower or something like that.  As usual I cannot locate the name of the person who did a really great job on this hair pin.  I on the other hand did not.  But here it is.

I had some white fabric, scissory, a compass to make circles b/c I don't have cool gadgets like a lot of you and a hot glue gun.

I cut out my need 6 for this project.  Three bigger ones and 3 smaller ones.  The bigger ones go ont he bottom and the smaller ones go on top but I'm sure you got that!

You fold the circle in half and then in half again.  Then you cut the corners to shape the petals and spread them out like a hand full of playing cards so that they fan out.  You then glue the corner to another cicle which is your base.  You glue all of these down.

Put a button in the middle and there you have it.

 It is so sloppy and I was ashamed to give it to my friend but I did b/c it's all I had and with it being my first it took me a while to do.

I hot glued a hair clip to the back.

What do you do with your *FAILS*?

  1. How is this a fail? i think it's really cute. I love the imperfectness of it, makes it unique. :)

  2. It was kind of limp and floppy...I guess I just see so many really cute ones out there and didn't think it compared? I compare myself to others work way too much!! I want/need to be able to hang w/ the big dogs!

  3. I don't wear hairpins, but if I did, I would wear this. It's cute!
