Quote for the Day

"Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night."

Flowers from Dollar Store Item

I saw this very cute idea for flowers made from material. Since it was my first time making these cute things, didn't want to spend too much $$$$ on the trial run. Was walking around the Dollar Tree the other day and tried to find some very synthetic clothes, or material. Much to my surprise I found this little girl's play cheerleading outfit. It is exactly what I had in mind!! Bought 2 - one blue and one green. The technique used is shown here - Thanks to Erin Bassett.
Each flower has 4 or 5 circles, then burned the edges of each one. Used a different button in the center of each, don't really like the blue thread - I thought it would "match" more but not so much!!
Final projects -

I like them!!
Thanks for looking,
