I sewed them together and also attached a little round piece of felt on the bottom to make it sturdier. It is actually attached to a 40mm snap clip. My mom is wearing it around the house...

Thank you so much! I don't know if this happens to you but everything I make... I don't like. I love the fabric when I go to the store and I buy it.. Then I make it and my husband and mom tell me it looks beautiful and I am like...well... I don't know.. Maybe if I did this.. It is horrible!

AND to make things worse, I went shopping yesterday and saw a bunch of bows and hair accessories for sales and they were horribly finished. Glue everywhere, crooked, bows were not heat sealed at the end to prevent fraying.. I can go on forever.. AND PEOPLE WERE BUYING!!! I am always so worried about quality but sometimes I feel like some will buy anything because they don't know any better.

So, thank you for looking and giving me an honest opinion. My husband will say anything to make me feel good... including, "yeah, you look great in that". lol

I have dumb question --- who would wear this flower? These folded flowers in fabric -- who are your buyers? Teenagers, Adults?

I put it on a 40mm snappy clip, what do you all put it on? How do you use them?? I don't want to make a bunch to find that there isn't a market... lol

Although they are fun to make!! Now, bows, really stress me out!! I will post some and show you what I mean. Even with my templates, they don't seem right!!!
