|my version of fabric flowers from circles!|
|material and fiskars circle template|
|the assortment of flower centres i found|
it should be noted my muscles were not big enough or the fabric i used was too thick to have no gap in the middle, so thats why i have used centres on all my flowers, but actually i really like the look of them. i originally thought these would be fantastic for attaching to gifts, but the options for these flowers are endless!
|i couldn't help it, i had to put one on a gift!|
- i doubled my cotton for the gathering stitch so i could pull it harder and not risk breaking the thread,
- all the centre's were hot glued on including the brads, a great place to this type of craft supplies is scrapbook.com
- all were sewn with white thread, after the first one i realised you couldn't see the cotton at all so there was no need to change thread to match the fabric
- i plan to use some of these flowers on pollyanna's plain t'shirts, for those ones i will use embroidery thread for the gathering stitch and use sewn in buttons for the flower centres so the flowers don't fall apart in the wash!
thank you bete bazzi's for a great visual explanation of these fabulous little flowers, it was awesome and so are they!
