CHEER UP. LET'S MAKE SOME FABRIC FLOWERS.

Yes it has snowed lots and lots here and keeps on. I thought I would cheer everyone up that wants spring to be here by showing you how to make some cool fabric flowers. I'm also looking for more followers so maybe in a couple of weeks I can have a giveaway. If anybody can send some followers my way by posting on your blogs I would be very grateful.

First, make a simple flower pattern that measures about 3 and 1/4" across. Make a leaf pattern that measures about 3" x 1 and 1/2". Cut a 2 and 3/4" circle out for the flower center. Cut everything out of fabric. I used a layer of warm and natural with the flowers.

Next, sew around everything and clip through one layer of fabric to turn flowers. Gather circle centers. Leave flat or fill with a little stuffing. Pull gathers tight and tie. Find some buttons to spruce up the centers and tie some floss in the button holes.

Now glue everything together. Cut a 1 and 1/2" circle out of the leaf fabric. This gets glued to the back of flower. See bottom right flower.

Ta Dah! That's it. See what you can do with them.

Becky, these are adorable and what a great way to use up scraps. Not sure I can send you many more followers as I have about the same as you - maybe you can try putting your follow button up just a little bit higher, I noticed that you really have to scroll down pretty far to find it. Good luck!
