    Gently cut the organza away from the design by cutting along the edges of the outline stitches. (Be careful not to cut any of the stitches.)

    Step 5:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Hoop another piece of organza. If your design had 3 layers, repeat steps 2 through 5. If you only have 2 layers, continue to step 6.

    Step 6:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Return the hoop to your machine and embroider the next color stop. (This will be the bottom layer.)

    Step 7:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Use spray adhesive or fabric glue and apply to the center of the flower only.

    Step 8:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Shown in the picture is a 2 layer design with the top layer placed on the bottom layer.

    2 Layer design: place the top layer on the bottom layer. Use the lines in the center to line up the top and bottom layers. Continue to step 10.
    3 Layer design: place the middle layer on the bottom layer. Use the lines in the center to line up the top and middle layers. Embroider the next color stop and stop the machine. Repeat step 8 with the top layer and place the top layer on the middle layer in your hoop. Continue to step 10.

    Step 9:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Start the machine again and embroider the design until you have completed all of the color stops. (Stay at the machine for this step! You may need to stop the machine and press down the top layer of petals as they may tend to curl up.)

    Step 10:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Remove the hoop from your machine. Remove the fabric from the hoop and gently cut the fabric away from the bottom layer of the design. Be careful not to cut the stitches.

    Step 11:

    Hold flower face up and poke a straight pin thru the center of the flower.

    Step 15:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Push the pin into the top of the stem wire. The end of the needle might stick out a little bit.

    Step 16:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Wrap floral tape tightly around the stem starting just under the flower and going to the bottom of the stem.

    Step 17:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    This flower is complete. Repeat the above process with as many flowers as you would like to fill your vase.

    Step 18:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Place the flower upside down, then apply glue to the center of the flower.

    Step 19:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Quickly place the large end of the barrette top side facing down on the center of the flower. Hold it there for a little while until the glue cools.

    Step 20:
    Now you have a cute inexpensive floral barrette.

    Step 21:
