This is a hair barrette I recently made for my daughters.  It was kind of a mother/daughter project.  My mother is an expert crocheter.  I have a chest full of table covers and bread spread and doilies that she made.  I had commissioned her a while back to make me a ton of these flowers in various colors.  I want to use them for different projects.  This was one of the projects.

Here is what I did:

The base is a two inch strip of fabric, folded over and pressed.  Run a gathering stitch across both raw edges, down the lengths of the fabric. Stitch to close in flower and keep it from unraveling.

Next sew a pearl bead into the center of the crocheted flower, then attached it onto the fabric base.

Finally secure a hair barrette base to the back of the flower.

Simple I know but if I don't write it down I will forget.
