Fabric Flowers

Here are a few more things using that old quilt my friend was throwing out...I have many more project to do from it too... I just loved this one so much...and I have 5 others she gave me too...

Rermember the apron from my earlier post HERE

well this is the little cute flower that was on it....I used a reclaimed zipper from a lovely pink sweater... and the quilt for the leaves, I made them two different ways...take a look see


on this one I didn't blanket stitch them..I rimmed them with the machine.
I have since taken a gold leafing pen and topped the zipper tops...
it gave it so much more
I wish I had taken a pictue of them





then the littlest piece of that quilt I have used so far
a small circle center to the
fluffy tulle hair pin
I think this is adorble and will be taking it
home to my girl


fluffy side view




I also have learned to make the wrapped roses.
I love, love , love them lots..
this beauty is made from a reclaimed velvet
bedspread... remember those from the 80's
with the tasseled fringe around the edges
well I had a pink one and a green one
(wish I still had the green one)
I cut this one to be bigger..
almost the size of my palm
But so pretty to me
I so love pink flowers




so soft and purty.



I will have more flowers to come..
I am learning how to make many kinds...

and I still have that cast off quilt

stay tuned for more..

I hope flowers bloom in your craft room too

I liked all the flowers, until I got to the last one...and I'm in love!! I'm not usually a huge fan of pink, but that flower looks so lush!
