Awesome Blossom

So I've been buying lots of long-sleeve shirts on clearance and making them fabulous. This has giving me an over abundance of left-over sleeves. I was messing around w/ a sleeve and came up with this:

I love it and it was so easy.

 1. Cut a piece of sleeve about 2 inches wide. You can't tell from the pic, but this is actually the bottom of the sleeve where it is stitched.  If you don't have a sleeve, I tried the same technique w/ a folded over piece of knit and it worked the same.
 2. Cut almost to the stitched line all the way down.
3. Start rolling.  Hot glue a felt circle on to secure.  Add a pin or hair clip if you want or sew it right on a t-shirt.  You're done.  I don't even think it took more than 3 minutes and it's so cute.  You can experiment with different lengths of sleeves for different looks.

You can even turn it upside down and make a carnation.
I pinned mine on this sweater.  (By the way, I stole the necklace out of the dress-up box).
