Lately I’ve become quite the crafter during my large expanse of free time (now that my scholarly obligations are nearly through!), and my current obsession is making fabric flowers.
I started making some a few months ago, after my friends and I became the most UNcool teens ever with our five-person “Craft Night” party - complete with sweater clips, owl paintings, and tie-dyed stuffs - but I eventually stopped crafting altogether. Now, it’s pretty much all that I want to do.
This is one of the first flowers I made while at our paaaartaaay.
It’s made of petals cut from both a beige linen-type and a cute green & white damask print cotton fabrics. I just layered them on top of a circle of the linen in a flower-like pattern, gluing them with fabric glue as I went. The button in the middle is just sewed on with green thread, to provide some contrast, though it might have been cuter with white or something.
After it was dried and set, I turned it over and hot-glued/sewed a pin back and small alligator clip to the linen circle. This way, I can wear it as a brooch or a hair accessory (or clip it onto a lampshade, where it’s been hanging out since I brought it home…).
So, I hope this was not a complete disappointment (haha!). I’ll try to start posting some pics of other flowers and things I make periodically, along with the occasional random whatever.
Anyway, I hope you have a nice day, whoever/wherever you are!
