The end of the school year is right around the corner. I have been thinking about what to make for L’s teacher. I decided some handmade fabric flowers would be nice. I decided to do them in a neutral color scheme, I know she wears a lot of black. I found the popular stretchy style headband at the Dollar Tree in a pack of 6 for $1. When I made the fabric flowers I put a hair clip and a pin on the back. I figure she can wear it in her hair by attaching it to the headband or using the hair clip. She can also use the pin to put it on a hat, her shirt or even a purse.
I have detailed instructions for making these flowers on a previous post. You can find the instructions here and more here. When I made the flowers in the instruction post I used a satin fabric and made the flowers look a little more loose and I sewed pearls in the center. For the flowers above I used a cotton, quilting type of fabric and wrapped the fabric a little tighter. I also rolled the center instead of tying a knot, which gave the flowers a little bit of a different look. The fabric I used is by Riley Blake Designs and it has glitter already on the fabric, which gave these flowers a pretty shine when they were finished.
I think any teacher would love to receive a handmade gift like this. What are you making for teacher gifts? I would love to hear about it, leave a comment below.
