Fabric Flowers

I found an adorable little tutorial on Sumo's Sweet Stuff blog for pinched fabric flowers. You can check it out HERE. I went off of that and the girls and I and my mom all hung out in VA before we came back to Florida and made a bunch of these! It was so much fun!


It was a learning process as well. I am not exactly one to follow the rules all the time hehe...that is probably why her flowers are much more clean cut than mine hehe.

I freehand cut the circles on mine and the really shaggy ones were made by the girls but they still love theirs and that is what matters! Here is what we came up with...

The girls made these:
I made these: And my favorite of all pieces is the following, made by my uber creative little genius, Samantha :)
She had such a simple little idea to add the "leaf" but it just made it so sweet and she made it for me! I wear it with pride!

It was a lot of fun, so ty very much for the tutorial, Sumo! Please check out her blog, it rather RAWKS! Today I participated in:
