Small beaded flowers in red, white, and blue, on standard size black bobby pins. I made these flowers out of glass seed beads woven together in peyote stitch with heavy-duty nylon thread. The thread is knotted off inside the hairpin and reinforced with glue.
The hairpins I used are the most common size sold commercially; they are approximately 2 inches (5 cm) long. The flowers are just under 1/2 inch, or a bit over 1 cm, across.
