I went to see my parents again in Charleston one last time before school starts and I neglected my blog for a whole week. Sorry!
My flight came in at noon on Friday and Daniel took the afternoon off to pick me up, have lunch with me, and take a long nap together before we went out to eat and to Starlight Theater to see Cinderella. So sweet! He bought me tickets for mother's day (ya, no kiddies, but it's always been hubby/wife day for us) and they were fantastic.
How did I get so lucky?
Anyway, according to the title of my post I should be teaching you how to make something. =)
I get asked how to make these all the time- family, friends, people in the fabric store for crying out loud! I didn't invent them, just learned through the grapevine. SO, here you go!
5 inches 100% Polyester
Thread and needle
Bead center if desired

First, cut at least 5 concentric circles. The more you have, the fuller your flower will be and the prettier it looks. I start cutting the smallest circle and get bigger and bigger.
|You want to be able to see a difference in size, but not too much. Only about 1/4 inch difference.|
Layer them together:

Baby Booties- but they were a shower gift and I forgot to take a picture. And my favorite...
Cardigan! I have like a thousand of them. Cannot get enough of them!
I bought this at Banana Republic for $10.99. Can you see it's original price? $50! Double clearance, folks! Add the flowers for $.50 and we have an awesome piece for only $10.50.
This is random, but my good friend and pen pal Tara had family photos taken of her precious and beautiful family and she wore a one shoulder dress I made for her and the little baby dress and diaper cover I designed for her Claira. Check out how perfect this picture turned out!
