Flowers of Fabric

Something I really like to make to use up odd scraps of fabric are flowers which I then use in a variety of ways such as on hair clips and brooches. Once your fingers get used to the origarmi of it they are very fast to make - I like making them while watching that nice Mr Portillo talking about the railways!

I thought it would be nice to share how I make these so I have done a tutorial for you. Later on I'll be doing an inspiration post so you can see the the ways I have used them to make accessories and even add interest to a photoframe!

Me and the fella got a bit snap happy when doing this. There are loads of pictures but these can be a bit fiddley so I wanted to make this tutorial as detailed as possible to avoid confusion.

Please let me know what you think and don't forget to take part in my Benefit They're Real! Mascara giveaway!
