How cute are these! I saw these and immediately wanted to make some for our spare bedroom. I have a quilt that has pinks, yellows and greens, and we have done some soft upcycled projects. 

I knew these would be so cute on the side table. I went to our local goodwill and found some denim jeans that looked brand new. I bought a few pairs in varying shades of denim and created these. 

​You will find that the pattern is so easy to follow. You simply cut out your petals and then create the center of the flower by following her directions.

I used a strip of fabric and my hot glue gun, and it was so easy to simply rinse and repeat. 

​This sewing project is so easy and is a great way to use jeans you are thinking about throwing out or taking to your local thrift store.

I love this fabric flower tutorial where she shows you 3 ways to have daffodils.  You need just a few fabric items includes squares of fabric, strips of fabric and some felt. You probably already have some of these in your fabric stash. 

These DIY fabric flowers are so simple.  I also love that she has photos for all the steps and makes it so easy to make.  She used a running stitch but I pulled out the sewing machine and once they were all made sewed all of them together. 

We used these for a really fun project. Our church has a Valentine’s Day event for widows in our community. We made a bouquet for each table and a small bouquet for each lady to take home. 

Simply take a mix of different flowers and use floral wire to make them. They turned out so cute and the ladies loved them.

To easily make these, you need the Clover flower frills template which I got off Amazon. This helps make easy fabric flowers especially the flower petals.  You also want to use cotton fabric. They don’t do well with heavier fabrics. 

You will want to see her tutorial. I made about 20 flower petals using different fabrics to make my own fabric flowers. I also used a dab of hot glue to make sure everything held in place.

This is such a great project for a celebration or to give it to your friend for a special occasion. I also made some for my kitchen counter. They turned out adorable. 

If you have a charm pack sitting around and haven’t got around to making a quilt, this would be the perfect project to use it for. The finished flower bouquet would then be color coordinated and gorgeous.

This easy project is perfect for the Christmas season. We love having poinsettias as part of our Christmas home decor, but sometimes they are hard to find, and I hate to throw them away. 

These are so easy to make and can easily be stored with your other Christmas decor. 

Grab your favorite red fabric and follower her instructions to make the flower shape with her free templates.  You can make a large flower like she did or make it smaller and create napkin rings. 

Easily take your pieces of fabric and at the bottom of the flower add some floral wire. You could also make some hair accessories for a Christmas event. It would be so pretty as a hair accessory with smaller petals.

​I love fresh flowers, but these are so precious.  We made them for a baby nursery and they turned out so cute.

She teaches in her tutorial a few different flowers. When finished, you can add them to some wood stems or floral wire to the back of the flower. We added them to a little girls room. 

You can easily make them with your fabric scraps. I used a Fat quarter bundle because I really love a coordinated color and sometimes struggle to color coordinate. 

I made a few more and added 1 set to our guest bathroom and used some special fabrics to make a bouquet and added them to my bedside table.
