Flower Power


A friend of mine is going to a function and will be wearing a top hat as part of her costume. She wanted to dress it up a little, and when I suggested flowers she loved the idea. I've made a few of these flowers now {made a bunch of them on my recent road trip} and they are so much fun to make.
.
I followed this tutorial but I will also show the easy steps right here... Oh so easy!!!
Cut five circles...fold them in half and gather the curved edge.
Sting them together (I use the same long piece of
doubled thread and gather one circle right after another)
...
Add some buttons to the center and stick 'em on a top hat.

♥ ♥ ♥
There are lots of fabric flower tutorials floating
around right now. Have you made any of them?

SO love these! I have to have a go - I'm thinking of using them for a craft activity with a group of women of very mixed interests and 'abilities' craftwise :-)

I can't believe how easy this looks because the finished flowers look so professional and polished iykwim. I'm really going to try this :)

Mom said...

I think I can even do these! I've got to give them a try! So cute, Sweetie---even though I'm not a hat wearer, I'd be tempted to wear this one! xo
