Fabric Flower Barrettes

(Don't forget to link up to my Marvelous Mess party!! Each week I pick on project to feature on my sidebar!!)

As a present for a little gal I know, I made some fabric flower barrettes. They are so fun and fancy....and easy to do!! I found a great tutorial on Simply Vintage Girl that totally guided me through the process of making the one you see above. 

What you need to make these curly-q ones are synthetic silky fabrics. Real silk won't work, believe me, I tried. :-)
I also made some rosettes (and you can find a tutorial for those just about *everywhere*).....

And some basic stacked circles (made from the some of the silk I *couldn't* use). :-)
I shared this post at the usual funky blogs:
