Fabric Flowers

I whipped up some fabric flowers today.... they are very addictive to make. I only caught a few on fire--- but I blew the flames out rather fast. *wink*


I know black isn't a flower color--- but I wanted some black flowers. This is the first time I've tried my hand at making fabric flowers... it won't be the last either, I've already cut a bunch of fabric to curl.

I finished off the backsides with some matching felt and a pin bar...

I am thinking about doing an antique & junk show coming up in May.... so I packaged them up using a wide bingo card and some of those cellophane bags I just scored last weekend.
 If you'd like to make some fabric flowers but don't know where to start... just google the words "fabric peony flower" and up will pop over three million sites with tutorials on how to make them. One word of advice, do this in your kitchen... by the sink.... nothing flammable close by... just on the off chance you can't blow out the flames if it catches on fire. Just sayin....

Looks like you are doing a great job on them! Have seen them before, but have never attempted to make any.
Hope you enjoyed your weekend.
