I don’t know why these struck such a chord with me when I first saw them, but when I stumbled upon a tutorial (there are actually MANY tutorials), I realized that I wanted them really, really badly. I love flowers, so that may be it. But there’s something about these fabric ones. I just like the way these look kinda , I don’t know, messy yet pretty? And the best part is that they only take a few minutes to make. Well, let me be honest. The first one took a solid half hour as I couldn’t get the twisting and glueing right. And the molten lava-like glue kept burning my delicate hands. But the more I made, the quicker they went.
I made these as pins which I wore on a sweater and it was super cute, if I do say so myself. But the best thing about these flowers is the fact that you can make a whole bunch of things with them.
Sweater embellishments (this one borders on crazy pants, but I totally love it anyway).
Necklaces. I’m TOTALLY making the second one!
Okay, I’ll stop now. Needless to say, the list can go on and on.
