Fabric Flowers by Bev

Today I am going to share how I make my fabric flowers.  On the card below I have used organza to make the flowers, in the little tutorial I have used cotton quilting fabric.  You can use any fabric, even thicker fabrics such as velvet.

I've added the notes on each photo to keep it simple.

I made two different sized flowers for this card.  The image and sentiment is from the new Whiff of Joy Store Stamp kit that is only available from stores that have elected to stock the kits.  The list of stores is on the Whiff of Joy website here

  21. This is so simple, now why didn't I think to do that? LOL My sister showed me how to do this years and years ago, long before I even found my love for paper crafting, so now I'm kicking myself. Your flowers are gorgeous! =)
    I think I'll have to give this a try, I flopped 4 or 5 years ago, who knows maybe I can handle the job now. LOL
    Thanks for sharing this technique Bev.

  27. This method is used in quilt making. I think it's called Devonshire Puffs. Except you make them bigger - stuff with a little filing and stitch with a little over stitch to the next one. Build up in rows and stitch the rows together

    love to see new workings on old methods
