Fabric Flowers

Well......here's my first attempt at making these fabric flowers.  My blog friend Lisa posted a tutorial on her blog on how to make these little gems.  Lisa recommended using a sheer fabric when making them, so I bought 3 different colors and made my first four.  I was surprised on just how easy they were to make.  I think they turned out really pretty.  Then I thought how cute they would be in some bright print fabrics.  So.....  I dug around in my quilting stash for the polka-dot fabric, but my flower ended up being pretty bulky and I had to do a lot of tugging and extra stitching to get them into a some-what flower shape!  I do like the fun look of the polka-dot cotton fabric, they will look cute on a card or on one of my granddaughters scrap pages.  Maybe with practice I will improve on their look.  I do recommend using a light fabric if you should choose to make them.  You can find a link to Lisa's blog...."What A Beautiful Mess" over on the right under "blogs that inspire me".
