Welcome Stampin' Friends!
Last week at convention we did some fabulous make and take projects. This year I got so many of mine done, which is usually not the case at all. Stampin' Up! had an optional time we could work on our projects and I loved it and was able to stamp and have fun and get all but one of my make and takes done.
The one I did not get done was a pouch with a fabric flower. I was not sure that this was my favorite of the projects so I thought it would be a good one for me to take home and make it my own.
Yesterday, I pulled out the 2" x 28" strip of Daffodil Delight Chevron fabric and decided to make a quick flower.
- Essentials Designer Fabric #126892
I made this flower into a brooch, but it could also be attached to a clip or headband.
Here's how I did it...
With a needle and thread, knot the end and do a running stitch down one side. Pull and gather the fabric as tight or as loose as you like. Mine was fairly tight. Tie off the thread and snip off the end.
Here is how I turn my flower into a brooch. First, I hot glue the flower to a felt circle, die cut with the Circles Die #2, using the second to smallest circle. I die cut a second circle, the same size. Cut to slits in it, by folding the circle in half and making little snip with your fabric scissors.
Insert your pin. Hot glue this to the back of the flower, right over the top of the previous felt circle.
Well, mostly over the top, what ever works. And look how cute the brooch is...
I am a nut, I know. I was playing with photo booth and imagining this...
Someone says: That's cute.
Someone: Yeah, I love it.
Me: My flower, Thanks!
Someone: Did you make that?
Me: I did!
Someone: Wow, you are so talented.
Me: Awh, thanks!
Okay, that's enough self-inflicted embarrassment for today!
