tablecloth becomes a hoodie

just in time for Christmas. 
I have never made a fabric flower. The gathering process intimidated me. But, I met my fear in the face this weekend and now I am ready to rock n roll. 

Using a tablecloth that has been shoved in a drawer forever. 
I cut a 60 inch strip along with a 60 inch strip of tulle left over from this project
I lined them up and did a gathering stitch. 
sorry for blur
Then I pulled the bobbin thread gathering it all up.
Then you just start glue gunning it in a circle motion to a piece of felt.
Then I brought in my clearance hoodie from Target and removed the drawstring. 
I added a strip of the plaid fabric as the drawstring for fun and added a button to the flower.

Great idea, I think i'll try it. It'll help me give my Santa sweaters some rest and still be festive.
