In December, I had so much fun bringing you my flower combs that I decided to make another one–but this time I’m making suede flowers to add. I originally shared this at Create.Craft.Love last month, but I’m happy to be bringing it home today.


I love how this little suede flower makes the hairstyle shine and only takes a needle and thread to sew!

Hi, I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, a DIY, crafts, and sewing blog, and I’ve been having a fun time dressing up my hair lately. I have naturally curly hair that I love, but sometimes I don’t get the chance to do my hair when I get out of the shower (sound familiar?) so on those days I like to do this simple hairstyle and add a little flair that makes it look like I had more time than I really did. We all need those tricks, right?

 Suede Flower Comb Supplies

  • Suede
  • Needle and thread
  • Small circle to trace and a pen
  • Bead
  • Comb


  1. Trace 5 circles on the wrong side of your suede with a pen or marker to make your petals. I used the lid of a paint bottle for my circles.Suede Flower Comb | Mabey She Made It | #hairdo #hairstyle #crafts #diy #flower #suede
  2. Cut them out, then cut one side of each petal flat like this:Suede Flower Comb | Mabey She Made It | #hairdo #hairstyle #crafts #diy #flower #suede
  3. Take your threaded needle (with a knotted end) and one petal, and go down, up, and down again on the end of the first petal. Continue to the next petal until you have all five petals on your thread.Suede Flower Comb | Mabey She Made It | #hairdo #hairstyle #crafts #diy #flower #suede
  4. Go back to your first petal and join the first and last together. Pull your thread tight to get a tight circle, and knot your thread.Suede Flower Comb | Mabey She Made It | #hairdo #hairstyle #crafts #diy #flower #suede
  5. Stitch a bead into the center of your flower.Suede Flower Comb | Mabey She Made It | #hairdo #hairstyle #crafts #diy #flower #suede
  6. Stitch the flower to a metal comb, and tie it off.Suede Flower Comb | Mabey She Made It | #hairdo #hairstyle #crafts #diy #flower #suede


And now when you pull your hair back, just slide it in and even a pony tail will look a little more put together. You know, so you can concentrate on cleaning up whatever your kids got into while you took your shower. 🙂

Oh my goodness Lisa- SO simple and easy for such a pretty comb. One can dress it up (social occasion/work) or down(for a jeans day).
Thanks I am putting that on my Christmas to do list for my granddaughters !
