Remember my recent post of crochet flower French barrettes? When I was posting the link of one of them on Facebook, somebody saw it and asked me if I could do a custom order with different colors. I said yes. This lady wanted me to make one barrette with purple flowers for her and one with autumn colored flowers for her mother.
The original flower barrette I made has about 15 tiny flowers. But the lady asked me to use bigger barrettes because she and her mother have thick hair. Bigger barrette means larger barrette top, so I had to make about 16 - 17 flowers and 7 - 8 leaves each so that they could cover the whole surface of the barrette top. After making the flowers, which took me about 2 days, I hand-dyed them with fabric dye using a paintbrush. I had to it very carefully otherwise I'd fail to create ombre. Then I let them to dry overnight. The next day, they're ready to be assembled. And here they are:
Autumn colored flower French barrette for the mother.
