Kentucky Derby is Sat. and everyone needs a new hat. right? I decided to whip one up and it only took about 30 min.
I went to Target and bought a hat and a dish towel. Yes, a dish towel. I saw this and really liked it and thought hey, why not.
I started by cutting out a flower from chipboard. Then laid it on the towel folded in thirds. And cut out 15 flowers. I only used 13.
Cut out a 2″ felt circle. This is our base
Fold the flowers into fours. Hot glue the flower and then place on felt. Once you have 4 petals down add another layer of 4 petals alternating them and then repeat once more.
Take your 13th flower and fold in half and roll into a rosette
And cut 1/2″ off the bottom. For detailed tutorial go here: Sorry about the blurry picture, I still haven’t got good at taking pictures with one hand.
Glue rosette in center.
Flip your flower over and glue a pin back onto it.
You can remove the flower and switch it up with something different or leave it plain.
This will also make a fun beach hat for summer.
