1. Scrap Fabric
2. Double sided ribbon
3. Needle & thread
4. Comb or clip
1. Cut 5 strips of fabric (1″ wide, graduating lengths).
2. Hand-stitch fabric strip length-wise (at 1/2 inch intervals).
3. Hold fabric at one end and cinch, turning it into a circle.
4. Stitch opposite ends together & tie a double knot to keep circle intact.
Be sure to Repeat these steps with 3 more strips of fabric.
Take last remaining strip and tie it into a knot.
Stack the 4 fabric circles (biggest circle on bottom to smallest circle on top).
Feed knot into fabric circles, so only the knot shows when looking at the fleurette.

Attach the double sided ribbon onto a comb or clip (stitch or hot glue).
