Thanks to all of you who have joined us all week for Flower Week! We had several other great flower ideas on our list, so we'll have to have a "part two" sometime soon. To end our week, here is one more cool flower we made and a bunch of other fabulous flower tutorials that we found out in blogland. Enjoy!
This fabric flower was made in a similar fashion as our ribbon flowers. We started with a 20-inch by 4-inch piece of fabric and folded it in half lengthwise. Then we sewed down the side to make it like a long piece of ribbon. We proceeded with the ribbon flower tutorial, pulling the strings to bunch it up a bit. After that, we rolled it, starting with one end as the flower center and wrapping the other end around until it was full enough. You can cut off the end if you have too much left and want a less-full flower. Then we stitched a few stitches through the layers on the bottom until it was secure. That's it! Sorry for the lack of photos--this was made and sent off to my sister a while ago. These are great as pins--just sew or glue a brooch pin to the back. This one was to pin on a nursing cover, but they'd also be cute on a bag.
