How to make the "Charlotte Flower"

Jun 25, 2010

In our Sisters Etsy Shop (online handmade store) we have a few flowers called the "Charlotte Flower".  I want to share how to make it today!
1. Cut out a strip of fabric. Mine is one inch by twenty four inches.
2. Tie a loose knot at one end. Leave a bit of fabric on the other end as shown.
3. Here's where it gets a bit tricky. Twist your fabric then wrap it around the middle knot tacking it in place with your needle and thread.
This part can take a while to get down.
One of my adorable friends sent me a text saying "Help, my flower looks like it has SPIKES!"
Be patient and go slow at firstnd make sure you like the way it looks before putting your stitch in.
I decided to make a GIANT one and put it on a head band.

4. Hot Glue your flower on to your head band. (If you are putting your flower/flowers on a clip then reverse the last 2 steps.
5. Cut out felt a half inch smaller than your flower and glue it on to finish.
Felt on the back is great. It makes it softer against your head and is the perfect way to make the whole thing more durable. When making a clip or using multiple flowers you ALWAYS want to attatch felt to the back first!
...and you're done.
