Here is how I did it.
You will need the following items:
*Fabric scraps (I used cottons and cotton blends)
*Something to use as a circle pattern
*Something to make the pattern (I used some cardboard from a cereal box.)
First I made the circles (1 1/4 inches, 2 1/2, inches and 3 inches) on the cardboard. After cutting those out, I used them to trace onto the fabric.
I traced two of each size on three different fabrics.
I then cut these on a double thickness of the fabric.
Some of my circles were quite wrinkled, so I ironed them. I found this step wasn't necessary for all the circles.
After I had all the circles cut and ironed, I stacked them in the order I wanted to put them together; two of the largest circles, two of the medium-sized circles, and two of the smallest circles. Next I sewed through the center of all six circles, attaching them to one another.
I then added a button to the center and tied off the thread. The next step was to cut towards the center on each sized layer. I alternated were the cuts were so all of the cuts wouldn't be in the same place.
Then, while watching Bonnie and Clyde (again), I picked at all the cut edges to get an unraveled look.
I really like how these turned out and plan on doing lots of things with them: headbands for The Bean, hair clips for the little girls of friends, lapel brooches. I even have an idea to turn at least one of them into a bracelet. I'll show you pics when I get to that.
If you try this, let me know or send pics. I'd love to see what you come up with.
