Fabric Flower Tutorials

I had fun today!  After my original plans went out the window, I devoted the majority of my Saturday (after a trip to the dog park) to making fabric flowers.  I picked up a cute fabric flower headband at a Shecky's Girl's Night Out this week and it gave me inspiration.  Finally a way I can indulge my fabric arts craving without a sewing machine!

Google supplied me with a range of tutorials to choose from.  I ended up meshing this one from Pink Paper Peppermints and this one from Sew Ritzy Titzy to make the tan and cream flower and the black flower, and meshing this one from Design*Sponge with tips from this one on Still Dottie to make the red one.

I've put pin backs on all of them so I can attach them my tops and cardigans, elastic headbands, purses, etc.  I'm thinking about adding accessories to my Etsy store.  Whether this eventuates or not, it was a lot of fun and there will be many more to come!


  1. OMG I LOVE Shecky's GNO's!! Love the floral flowers too- they are so beautiful!! Enjoy!!

  2. Carolyn -- thank you! And yes Shecky's was pretty awesome, the goodie bag was incredible, definitely worth more than the price of the ticket! (The free mixed drinks were a definite bonus too ;) )
