A Little Pretty for the Busy Mama
As I was laying in bed the other day (which honestly I rarely do with my eyes open) I looked at my bedroom curtain. Hummmmm..... just the right color.
Here is my "tutorial". Please don't give me credit for coming up with it. I have looked at so many "how to make fabric flowers" instructions in the last year that I honestly couldn't tell you if I saw this somewhere or not. But, when I started making these Saturday night, this is how I did it. So easy and if you don't have to keep stopping to do wonderful little chores like clean up messes, and brush little teeth it would only take about 5 minutes.
Cut out your petals. Do 5 or 6 of the same size then a few smaller sizes. This is purely up to your own taste. If you want it fuller do more.....more subtle and delicate do less...simple right? I know my floor looks totally gross....it really doesn't look like that! It's the camera coloring! Normally I always work at my craft table, but the princesses kept needing me. So I sat on the floor and watched Bugs Bunny with them. I've found if they can see me, they bother me less.
So I snatched Princess Moriah, this morning, and said, "Come here. I need your head." I just quickly twirled a messy bun to let you see an idea of what it looks like, in the hair.
