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.
