Here's how i made them....

"Puffy Fabric Circle and Ribbon Embellishments"

Step 1: Cut a circle from fabric or felt. Turn fabric over and use the running stitch close to the out side edge.

Step 2: Now pull the two thread ends - so it gathers. Tie a knot and trim the thread. Now just stitch a button on top.
"Ribbon flower"

Step 1: Do the same as you did the puffy flower circle. Use the running stitch along the edge of a large wide ribbon.

Step 2: Pull the two thread end so that it gathers - Tie a knot then turn it over and add a couple of stitches where the ribbon ends meet up. This just keeps it neat!

and the end result...... way to easy. I have seen the puffy circle ones around and wanted to know how to - so I just played and this is how I made mine. Please feel free to give it ago if you have not made them before..... my bet is when you do you will love them..... thanks for stopping by....Mwah

Oh and my small TIP look around the home for fabric before you go out shopping for some. I use the kids old jeans and other clothing items. I like to save my penny's!
