Don't you just love the colors in this hydrangea pin? To me, it looks like a blue bloom that has been left on the bush and starting to dry. I have been making flowers for my neighbor friend as accessories for the beautiful scarfs she makes. She was involved in a craft boutique this weekend, so I have been making quite a few flowers.
To make this, I used several of the 5 petal flowers from the Island Floral Die (118871). I melted the edges, folded them in fourths, and sewed the florets in place on one flat flower as the base. On the back I tacked on a circle of taffeta cut from the second smallest circle on the Circles #2 Die (114526) before stitching on a pin.
This is another style that I have been making for awhile. The Antique Brads make a quick and easy center, but I sometimes use tiny beads instead. Some are pins and some are clips. The circles are cut out using the Circles #2 Die, and all four sizes are used in each flower.
