SIMPLE CRAFT #2 doily flower

Here is another very simple crafty thing to do if you feel so inclined.

All you will need is a small doily, thread and needle and a bobby pin or brooch pin.

 
With some thread, hand sew a running stitch around one of the inner circles of the doily. (sorry, I used white thread, so you can't really see it!)
Pull the running stitch tight, this will cause it to "bunch"
attach a bobby pin or brooch pin, simple by stitching it on.
Done! cute!
 
And while I'm on the subject of cute things, do yourself a favour and visit my sister in law and friend's new Etsy shop, Little Things Splendid. Ash and Mayra have found some very cute and retro things and they're ready to post it straight to you!!!!! You can read Ash's blog post about the new venture here. Good luck Ash and Mayra, hope it goes very well!
