What I've Made...

:: Flowers ::

My first singed petal flower.

...and my second one. Using this fabric was much more difficult!
The first rolled roses I made. I attached them to felt and sewed them to a cardigan for my mom.

An attempt at a flower using wired ribbon

Felt rolled roses...fun adornments and cheap & easy to make! I found the tutorial on Mrs. Priss. Come to think of it, I think I used her tut for the singed flowers, too.
I really like these. Kinda remind me of The Pleated Poppy's Petal Pusher, which I just adore to death. I had no tutorial...it was a lot of trial and error using an old tshirt until I got the look I wanted.
Experimenting with a few different flowers. I liked the rolled rose in the center the best. And I like the magnetic backs vs. pins.

You know how much I love these and I hope you have continued success with them!

All of these look great (and a little difficult to be honest) and I love how you use them on your clothing. Perhaps I'll hop back here sometime to try one or two!
