DIY: T-shirt fabric flower pins

I made a few of these pins to give as gifts and to wear.  Using old (and clean) t-shirts or buying them inexpensively at your local craft store means the fabric will not fray like other fabrics.  Felt could also be easily substituted.  I followed this tutorial, except made a template from chipboard using one of the flowers on my Cricut (the cartridge I used was borrowed from a friend, and I can't remember which it was).  I also cut 1 1/2" circles from chipboard for the felt.

Supplies:
T-shirts
Craft Felt
Pins, barrettes or headbands. (I used these pins purchased at Michaels.)
Temporary/removable glue (I used this glue)


Here is the tutorial I followed from Emily's Little World, which I found via Pinterest.

I did use some of repositionable adhesive on the chipboard templates to temporarily attached the fabric to the template to make cutting the flower shapes much easier.  I did the same for the circle template and the felt.

These flowers could be attached to barrettes or headbands as well.
