Silhouette Fabric Interfacing (sewable and clean cut)  #silhouette #spon

I LOVE making my daughter hair flowers, but I don’t love taking the time to cut the fabric out into flower shapes.  But this became really simple with my Silhouette and with the clean cut fabric interfacing.

I downloaded a 3D flower shape, sized it and cut it on my fabric lined with clean cut interfacing according to package directions.

I was so impressed with how well the Silhouette cut fabric!  It was absolutely perfect…and fast!

Layered Hair Flowers using a Silhouette - #silhouette #spon #hairbows #craft

I simply layered the flower pieces together (I mixed and matched the fabrics) and then hand sewed a button through all the layers.

Then I attached lined alligator clips with a hot glue gun and voila!  Really pretty hair flowers!  (Check out my post on how to line alligator clips here.)
