Hi, I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, a DIY, crafts, and sewing blog, and I’ve been having a fun time dressing up my hair lately. I have naturally curly hair that I love, but sometimes I don’t get the chance to do my hair when I get out of the shower (sound familiar?) so on those days I like to do this simple hairstyle and add a little flair that makes it look like I had more time than I really did. We all need those tricks, right? I’m going to show you how to make this adorable Suede Flower Comb!
Suede Flower Comb Supplies
Needle and thread
Small circle to trace and a pen
Trace 5 circles on the wrong side of your suede with a pen or marker to make your petals. I used the lid of a paint bottle for my circles.
Cut them out, then cut one side of each petal flat like this:
Take your threaded needle (with a knotted end) and one petal, and go down, up, and down again on the end of the first petal. Continue to the next petal until you have all five petals on your thread.
Go back to your first petal and join the first and last together. Pull your thread tight to get a tight circle, and knot your thread.
Stitch a bead into the center of your flower.
Stitch the flower to a metal comb, and tie it off.
And now when you pull your hair back, just slide it in and even a pony tail will look a little more put together. You know, so you can concentrate on cleaning up whatever your kids got into while you took your shower. 🙂
