Fabric Flowers


This was a pretty time intensive project, but I love how it turned out!  The flowers are made with the new Close to My Heart Textiles!  This is the For Always collection and it complements the paper pack.  I like that they chose patterns that were complementary instead of matching the same patterns as the paper packets.  I used the Kraft Container made at the Close to My Heart Album Retreat as inspiration.

To make the flowers:
1. Cut fat quarter into 2.5 inch strips.
2. Sew right sides together using a .25 inch seam allowance or smaller
3. Turn so that right sides are showing
4. Press flat
5. Sew basting stitch
6. Gather, forming into a flower
7. Hand stitch running back and forth along the circle base until it will hold by itself
8. Cut small circles of green felt, cut small hole in center
9. Hot glue floral pick to base of flower and cover with green felt
10. Arrange in Kraft Container
