Using the left over buttons I started by making the simple flower that I used on my ear warmers, but these are not exciting enough for a jacket or as a hair clip so I have jazzed them up with embroidery and beads (both which I have in abundance, must stop buying things!!).
I love these, they were so quick to make and I can colour them to match my outfit. I raided my dad's garage and found some badge pins to sew on the back. Now these can be used as a brooch, a hair clip if you thread the pin through the clip or it can be pinned to a hair band. A couple of weeks ago whilst shopping with a friend I came across this flower hair piece and brooch on sale in Miss Selfridge's. It looks so easy to make I may have to make some more!!
I have found lots of other tutorials to make fabric flowers which I must try out, these are some of my favourites:
