Fabric Flowers!

Do you guys know how accomplishing it feels to cross things off a "bucket list"? I've decided that as I go through my 21 before 21 list, I'll cross them off in the original post.

Anyways, my goal for today was to learn how to make fabric flowers. Let me just tell you, they are way harder than they look, but I was on a pressed time limit! Here's my inspiration:
Original Tutorial
To save a little time, I used hot glue instead of looking through all my crafts for fabric glue. (Meaning I haven't organized my craft supplies yet!) Anyways, here's what I came up with:

And I was able to add them to an old decoration in my room for a little more cuteness:
I'm thinking about buying some white fabric, or finding it in all my crafts, to add some more! I'm definitely addicted already. I was even thinking of making headbands, but that might just be crazy. Let me get through my 21 first. ;)
Have yall tried fabric flowers yet or have any fun tutorials to help me learn? Leave me a link. I'd love to check it out!

  1. Very creative! It's pretty and I don't think it costs too much, right? I've always wanted to do something artsy like that with tutorials i find in Pinterest or something :)

    1. They were so cheap! All you need is fabric and hot glue. I think I got the fabric for like $2.20 a yard at Walmart, and you use an inch each time, so that's a potential of 36 flowers (Or 44 if you use the width!). Definitely worth it. :)
