Hair Flowers w/link to tutorials

I have been wanting to make flowers and other accessories for my daughter's hair.  She is quite ruff with the headbands and clips I have bought and I like to have an ample supply of hair accessories.  My preschooler K is not fond of having her hair combed, actually I have to chase her around the house just to spray some water on her hair and try to fluff it.  It is amazing how a headband or barrette  takes her look from, looks like she needs her hair done to an amazing curly afro. With school starting back up I finally have sat down and made some flowers that I am either attaching to a headband or barrettes.
Giving credit where it belongs, there are many tutorials on how to make the flowers but these are the blogs I went to when I sat down to make mine.
Bridget at Everyday Chaos , check her tutorial out, is admittedly 
addicted to making the tattered roses. 

I used scrap fabric from JoAnn's and it truly was a lot easier than I thought it would be. 

I don't know i f you have heard of Skip to my Lou , but you are missing out if you have
not stopped by the blog.  I got this flower from her list of 10 flower tutorials, this 
particular flower was being showcased on the blog of Emily Rose from Simply Vintage Girl.  

I hope you enjoyed my flowers and will make some for a little one around you. It is so easy and inexpensive you will not look at hair accessories the same.
