Last Sunday was unexpectedly a VERY productive weekend day. Obama took his second official oath, San Francisco 49ers beat Atlanta Falcons (we’re going to the Superbowl!!! Still cannot fully believe it. It’s amazing.), and my friends and I got to finish three DIY Fabric Flower Accessories projects. What an enjoyable Sunday spent at a good friend’s house!

It’s so much fun when you have your girlfriends helping you (they’re previously featured on Three Girls, One Camera post), good wine and cheese for light refreshments, the football games playing live on TV, and easy-to-do DIY projects that are both relaxing and rewarding. Basically, we were using the same methods I used for making the Evelyn headband (minus the button at the center). This time, only glue was used; there’s no stitching involved. The results are below:

Cute, aren’t they? One of the girls even said how “therapeutic” making those petal circles felt. The first pink hair pin is my favorite (maybe it’s partly because the wearer is so cute herself ;)

The second (and smallest) hair pin was made towards the end of the 4th quarter of San Francisco vs. Atlanta. I was very nervous, but thankfully my hands were steady enough to twist and glue that piece of cotton fabric together. Shortly after I managed to pin it to my friend’s hair, the room screamed and joyfully celebrated SF 49ers’ victory to the road of Superbowl. And then the third girlfriend arrived, the doorbell sound almost drowned by our cries of joy.

Work is Done.

Work is Done.

The third hair pin was made for the third girlfriend, who upon arriving expressed deep interest in the scattering of fabrics and notions on the foldable table we were working on. After selecting the chiffon print fabric, we got back to work. It’s basically the same hair accessory as the pink one, but made in different fabric. To add more firmness, I mixed in small amount of white tulle fabric.

I genuinely love all three fabric flower hair pins. Even though I have my favorite, all three suit their owners. And for that, I’m very happy. Now, if only I have helpers everytime I do a DIY project…

Until next time,
