Easy No-Sew Pinwheel Hairbow

Hello Sweeties!
Today I'm bringing you a quick and easy hairbow tutorial:
The Pinwheel!
This literally took me 5 minutes to make!
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 coordinating fabrics
- Heat n'Bond
- scissors
- an iron
- glue gun
- a button
- alligator clip

Here's how I do it:
1: Cut two coordinating 4-inch squares of fabric and one 4-inch square of Heat n'Bond.
2: Place the Heat n'Bond square on the back side of one fabric square; make sure the Heat n'Bond is "rough side" down.
3: Iron with NO STEAM for 2 seconds to adhere; trim edges.
4: Peel away paper backing of Heat n'Bond.
5: Place other piece of fabric, face up, on bonded surface of previous fabric.
6: Iron for 8 seconds; trim edges.
7: Cut a 1-inch line from each corner toward the center of fabric square.
8: Be sure cuts are even.
9: Place a small dot of hot glue in center of square.
10: Bring in right corners of cut edges and push down onto glue.
11: Glue a button in the center.
12: Glue alligator clip to the back.
(I add a piece of fabric inside the clip to create a more finished look.)
And viola!
Fun, festive, and freakin' cute!
Special thanks to Britany at 32 Turns for loaning me a model. =)
