After skipping last week, I’m back this week with a vase of flowers. I used this tutorial for my flowers and attached the buttons with elastic thread to make it easier to attach the flowers since they’re so bulky. If I were to do it again, I’d hem the triangle petals under before gathering them and I’d gather them with elastic thread and sew the buttons on with normal thread. 🙂
The stems are felt, which provided just the right amount of bend I was looking for. For the flowers, I used two very similar fabrics for each and I love the way it turned out with the subtle differences in the prints!
