  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

Quiet Book Sew Along Week 3 : flowers

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!
