I hope you are enjoying the hop so far! For my project, I wanted to make something that was easy enough for everyone to try and hopefully you will want to! This shabby-chic fabric flower broach is perfect for upcoming Mother's Day and would make a lovely gift for anytime of year! These are so simple to make and are a super cute way to accessorize an outfit for most any occasion! Fun!
Here's how I made it...
First, I cut 8 circles freehand in graduating sizes using 4 different fabric patterns. Since my broach is shabby-chic, the circles don't have to be perfect at all. This is a great way to use up some of those fabulous fabric scraps that you just can't throw away.
Next, I began tattering around each circle with my fingers. As I pulled and tugged on the fabric, it stretched and became more "petal" like.
Finally, I chose a vintage-style button for the center, hand-stitched it in securely. That's it!
Add a pin of choice to the backside if you want to wear it as a broach like I did. Or use these shabby-chic flowers in your crafting, scrapbooking or in whatever other way you can think of! Thanks for letting me share with you today! Now, hop on over to Amanda's blog and see what fabulousness she has to inspire you with!
