Shabby Chic Flower Tutorial

January 18, 2013

Do you love the look of the pre-made fabric flowers but can't find the right color to go with your artwork?  How about making them?


You don't need to know how to use a sewing machine.  If you can do a small gathering stitch and plug in your glue gun, you can make these easy shabby chic flowers.


The great thing about using muslin, is that you can change the color of it by tea dyeing or misting with Glimmer Mist to change the color.  


If you are like me I just couldn't stop after I made one flower...

Wishing you a creative day, sweet friends.

Thanks for this. I've got a collage formulating in my brain at the moment and these flowers will be a nice addition. Thanks again :-)
