Orchid Barrettes

Here is a finished barrette from yesterday's progress post. They really don't take long to make, I was just a little bit overwhelmed with projects yesterday. This orchid is rather small, so there is no stuffing in it, simply two layers of felt for each of the petal shapes, sewn together (hand stitched, not machine). I used glass seed beads in the center, as I think it adds a nice shiny thing to the barrette that makes you look at it and say "oooohhhh...pretty!".
