Handmade Fabric Flowers
Ooooooo it is my first post on this blog. I'm so excited because I've been wanting to link to my sis in laws totally awesome blog. I'm hoping this blog will eliminate my urge to have a blog for every interest and simplify things a bit.
I was looking for something I could make for my other sis in law. When I saw this, it screamed at me and told me I must make this for "A". Although, I cannot take credit for this idea, I feel the need to share it with the world. It's so fun and easy. I found this idea from a friend's cousin who is extremely talented.
Go here for the tutorial. She explains how to do it step by step.
*I found that I wanted to make all different sizes. I have 3 little girls that I wanted to make some for too! The smaller sized flowers, I actually found that using tongs was helpful when singeing the small pieces of fabric.
*My favorite synthetic fabric to use was satin. I loved the look. Try all different kinds for a different look.
And then. . .
All the possibilities of where you could use these little lovelys popped into my head. You could really get creative with this. Have fun!
