|ribbon flower handstitched with button center|
Made a flower out of ribbon scraps and buttons. And a needle and thread.
|I'm finally getting to sew flowers!!|
Made these with scraps. Once they are laundered, the ends become frayed ( I like that look ). I then iron lightly and sew to the t-shirt scarves.
Feb, 2013: I bought a couple of wool blazers at a resale shop for $1 each, chopped them up and made flowers. Connie also gave me some of her beautiful flannel scraps to make some. These are soooo easy. Just freehand cut about 6 large "pedals", hot glue together. Then cut 5 medium size pedals, hot glue onto the 6. Finally, cut 4 small pedals, glue on. Embellish with beads, stones, buttons, etc in the center. One look I like, is stacked buttons. (I didn't get a pic of that before I gave it away).
Hot glue a small piece of felt to the back and glue on a pin. These flowers can be used on jackets, dresses, purses, tablerunners, hair, scarves. For hair and scarves, it'd be best to glue a hair clippy to the back and not use a pin. Ouchie.
3-6-13: Jeanette made a denim flower today. She hot-glued the pedals, then glued a bit of fab between some of the pedals to give it some lift. So smart!
