Un petit détail



I had a simple gray knitted cardigan that I loved (I love simple things), but kinda got bored with it. So I thought about spicing it up a little with something that can be done in less than 15 min. And this is how it turned out.
You only need six small circles of fabric, a bead (small button or pearl), a tiny little safety pin (optional), needle and thread to sew with.

~So first you take two circles fold each of them in half and than place them one next to the other (creases in the middle). Than sew them together in the middle with a few stitches, so you get a new circle (but it is fluffier).
~Take another circle, fold it in half, than once again; so you get sort of a triangle.
~Repeat with the other three circles and than sew each of them into the middle of your main "fluffy" circle. When you're ready, glue the bead (pearl or button) into the middle of your flower (you can use hot glue. Honestly, I used something similar to superglue, but it's somewhat stronger, so basically anything will do).
~And to finish things you can either sew it to your clothing, or attach it with a tiny safety-pin, your choice.
Et voilà:bisous, Erika
