Love me a fabric flower!!

I'm not sure when I got bitten by the Fabric Flower bug, but lately I'm obsessed. Luckily, there are a million tutorials on how to make them...here's an example.

Here's my first attempt:

And here's a "rosette" that I'm trying to finish...I need fabric glue, and I bought the wrong stuff :(

I literally woke up at 2am one night, and lay there obsessing. Finally by 3am I couldn't stand it anymore. I got up & browsed the internet, found a tutorial, and gave it a try with tissue paper.

I'm such a geek...I saved it :)

Now that I've made a couple, I have a new obsession...what can I do with them?? I've already bought some pins and barrettes, as they seemed the most obvious...but what I'd really like to do is make a bag, kind of like my new pillow covers, and put them on the bags.

I'm having a little trouble staying focused!

By the way...I'm also obsessed with my new workspace...I finished my "idea boards" over the weekend, and started tacking up random pieces that I'd like to work with. The table is my pride and joy...got it at an estate sale for a song, and refinished it.

What's your latest obsession??

  1. Love the flower - you should open a consulting company that goes to peoples home to teach these cool tricks - it would be a great girls night with wine & all! And we will all have something to show for our evening!

  2. I'm in!! I'll be the founder, you can be the president, Jilly can be the marketer, Jodi can be the party hostess :)

  3. I made some of these tissue flowers recently. They are so darn pretty.
