DIY Flowers Barrettes

I have already found a use for my baby blue organza fabric!

I've been wanting to make flower barrettes for my hair, because they are so expensive to purchase. That was when I found Mrs Priss and her wonderful tutorials! So here's the result of my attempt. I have yet to attach the barrettes, but someone commented on her tutorial that the best/cheapest place to purchase blank clips in bulk is Sally's Beauty Supply. Great tip!

Savings Saturday: Fabric

Goodwill Finds of the day!
I plan to find a new use for each of the following:
1 Snowflake decorated Table cloth
1 Golden Table cloth
2 Sheer baby blue organza curtains (would've been 3.20 per yard)
4 Ivory lace curtains (I'm especially excited about these!)
Total yardage: probably around 12-14 yards
Total Cost: $21
Would've been $80+ at a Fabric store
