Kanzashi Flower Hairclips

So while I was browsing Etsy one day, I saw a beautiful flower hair clip made from fabric. I just had to make one for my little girl. I found out that they're typically called "kanzashi" flowers. Here is what I did: I found some fabric and cut out little squares and circles (I wanted to see the difference), stitched them together and jeweled the centers. Here are the results:
The one at the top was made from squares. The bottom three out of circles. Left is out of 5 petals, the rest 6 petals, but different sizes. The purple one is my favorite! You may see some of these coming to the Etsy shop soon!
