Amy's comment about making accessories out of chiffon reminded me of this belt I made a while back.
I got a piece of trim I liked at Jo-Ann's and then cut a bunch of this flower shape out of scraps I had and some white tulle:
When I was done, I stacked all the flowers and stitched them together right in the center.
Then I hot glued some little pearl beads to the center and hot glued the flower onto my piece of trim.
I've just been tying it in a knot every time I wear it, but I'm thinking little snaps or a hook and eye would be a good idea.
