I made these fabric flowers over the weekend and can't wait to put them to good use somewhere. I'm thinking a headband or brooch. I'll be sure and show you what I come up with, I've got some headband ideas that I'm really excited about. If you want to make the cute fringe kind Cheri has a great tutorial, I'm so glad she shared it because they are so fun and easy. My fabric flower tutorial for the others is here.
I'm really in love with this color combination lately. The problem is that small things like seeing these flowers looking so cute makes me want to go buy yards and yards of fabric in this combination to make curtains and pillows for my family room. I keep trying to remind myself to slow down and think about it for a little while first. I tend to buy, buy, buy when it comes to crafting supplies and I need to make the projects I've already bought for before I buy more. Does anyone else have that problem?
Martha Stewart was on Oprah yesterday and Oprah was like, "why crafting?" Now I love Oprah, but here's where we differ. I couldn't survive without crafting. There's something in me that has an intense need to create, I guess I didn't realize that it's not innate to everyone. For me the desire to create and craft is almost as strong as the desire to eat is. That's probably why my fabric closet and I are both a little over stuffed. Maybe next time I want a cupcake I should just grab one of these flowers instead, I think they're quite a treat!
