Fabric Flower Frenzy


We had a new niece born in our family a couple weeks ago, and along with the new sewing I've been doing for the girls and myself, I thought some new accessories were necessary.


1, 4, 5, and 8 are based on my ruffled flower tutorial.  I know, I'm a snob for finished edges (and more of that to come!), but aren't some of them fun with the frayed edge?

3 and 7 are made following Tasha's fun Pointed Flower Tutorial.  I got all excited to make these, and then realized I didn't have any covered button supplies.  So, I  made my own covered buttons with old shank buttons I had in my stash.

2 and 6 were made loosely following the Sew4Home Tattered Flower tutorial.

I think making these can become slightly addictive.  Consider yourself warned.  To make one into a pin, simply glue a bit of felt to the back of the flower and use a large safety pin.  For hair clippies, I use my method shown for my Simple Non-Slip clippies, with Sally alligator clips.

Hoping you're enjoying your day.  The sun is finally out here in Idaho, and it is actually warm outside!

Your fabric flowers are wonderful, great little round up of inspiration. We are using fabric flowers in our house right now to accessorize cloche hats and spring jackets!
