making fabric flowers

hi everyone
so today Ive been making flowers from my old jeans that I'm never gonna fit back in to
its really easy and simple to do.

         all you need is:
  • old jeans (or any fabric)
  • a hot glue gun
  • some sissors
  • beads
so here goes........

first you need an old pair of jeans

then cut one of the legs across in to about 3" strips

now cut along one of the seams so they lie flat

now fold up to the other seam making the folds about 1 n 1/2" wide

and cut along the seam now you have two secions

take the folded part and fold in half

cut a qurter circle out of the corner do this with all your fabric so you have
about 10 circles

 you should end up with this or more circles both are right
on the one faceing bad side up put glue around the edge and in the middle
place the other circle on top so good sides of the fabric are both facing out

take a new circle and fold it in half

then fold in half again place a blob of glue on to the pointed end

then glue it to the circle you made earlier keep on gluing your
folded circles all the way around

then just keep layering untill your happy with your flower
i place a bead in the middle to brake up the colour but finnish yours how ever you like

there you go one pretty flower from them jeans you loved so much
you could put it on a hair band a top a make up case anything you fancy
hope you enjoy making them
