fuN with fLoWers

I started making these little flowers and I just can't stop!  I'm putting them on EveRYthInG.  Pillows, shirts, necklaces, gift bags...even babies!!  They're fun.  And quite trendy at the moment.  Seems everyone is flowered up these days.  This all kind of started when a neighbor asked me one day if I thought I could make these silly, shabby, twisty (I don't know, what would you call them?) flowers.  She had been to a baby boutique and purchased a few and I almost dropped dead when she told me how much she paid.  Seriously!  Lots of $.  Hers were a bit more fancy than mine.  But I'm hoping to get fancier, I'm still practicing.  The possibilities are endless here, and people...DO NOT pay the boutique prices for these!  They are so easy to make and you can find tutorials ALL over the place (try this one)...making your cost a LOT less.  Go try them, have fun with these silly, shabby, twisty flowers.

On Pillows

On necklaces.  I made the blue one, the white one came with the necklace.

I was selfish and made myself a shirt!

These are great in place of a bow on packages (this one is a pin).

And of course, headbands.

Thanks so much for posting this! I was actually just upstairs, trying to figure out how to make flowers for my girls, and was getting frustrated, so I turned on the computer and started web-surfing to find tutorials, and I came here to look at your cute flowers, and here this was! THanK-YoU!!!
