Dishes? What dishes?

Ever see something on a blog and you just have to try it? Despite the dishes in the sink and dishwasher? Oh good, me too! 

My friend Heather at Crazy lil' Thing Called Love posted this denim flower that she found (and then made) at Donna Downey's blog, and I immediately started flinging fabric everywhere to see if I had some denim. 

It's a pretty quick and fun (and messy) project to do.  It requires felt, the fabric, and quick dry glue...and lots of twisting!



This was the second one I made.  I love seed beads, don't you?




The larger one is the first one I made, I love those beads too!  I just found some muslin kicking around, that's my next flower. 

Now...what should I do with them?

  1. Dishes smishes. They'll wait! These are awesome and I'm pretty sure I just happen to have some leftover denim. I am in trouble!

  2. I have always wanted to make some fabric flowers. Yours turned out great! I've never seen them with seed beads before, and I like it! I think they would look so great pinned on a lapel. Great job!

  5. I love your fabric flowers! And denim is too cute! That's how I made mine, too. Takes some time and patience. I used the fabric glue but I had to use a LOT. I may try using a hot glue gun next time. I love the seed beads. I have a ton of those and didn't even think to use those! Great idea!

  7. Those would be great pins for a winter coat. Do you think they would hold up to the snow we're bound to get soon? :)
