Let's do some fabric flowers.

Do you like these fabric flowers? I'm in love with them.

I want to create all kinds of flowers, fabric flowers, flowers made in crochet,
and also flowers using zippers, this obsession obviously must be a consequence
of the spring. There are many uses for flowers; to decorate bags, to create
ornaments, making pillows, pictures, everything is in the imagination.
I searched online tutorials to make them. From  all the places I have visited,
the ones that I found and I loved  are these one:
It was by using the tutorials of this blog that I could create my fabric flowers.
The Decorated House  is a blog where you will find great inspiration, all the  creations that you will find  are terrific, we can spend a beautiful time there.
To make this flower
I used this fabric edge
This edge is usually cut and then removed it, but I liked this edge, so I said
to myself that I was going to use it to make one of the flowers.
Finally, I decided to do two flowers of different sizes;
 To make the center of the flower I used a strip of fabric ( the same strip that
I use often to do the strips of my totes) that is one inch wide.

As a final touch, I added three pearls !
 Looks beautiful!!!!

I really liked how it turned out!

I want to show you a few more photos...

This is another flower that I did;


I made them to decorate a ruffle tote  that I am doing right now, I am taking
pictures of this ruffle tote while I'm working on it. Actually, I finished  the
outside, so the next post will be how to make ruffles and sew them to the outer
I hope that  you have enjoyed these flowers; I'm in love with them.

See you soon.

Fairy Kisses said...

I ove these flowers, they are gorgeous. I have seen some great tutorials to make these types of flowers but not brave enough to try them yet. I am working on bows at the moment but flowers would be so great to make myself. I am not sure mine would turn out anywhere near as nice as yours though.
Seen you at the sew many ways link party and thought I would come by and let you know how lovely I thought your project was :)
Would love it is you popped by my blog sometime :)
