The Flower Power of Black and White

Flower accessories are everywhere as well as ideas and tutorials on how to make all kinds of fabric flowers. I've been in love with a lot of the layered flower ideas and loved those made from fabrics like organza and satin, but didn't want to hear from Mr. Chocolate about burning down the house if I tried to do the "burn it over a candle or with a lighter techniques " ( for anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about you can see that HERE ). So I thought maybe my heat gun would work and it did ! Since I wear a ton of black and white, those who know me won't be surprised to see I started with those colors. I made these pins that I can wear alone or even all together on tee-shirts, jackets, whatever! Perfect for a last minute Mother's Day Gift!

  • Cut circles (descending in size) from synthetic organza...cut freehand they don't have to be perfect. I did 6. 
  • Carefully go around the edges with your heat/embossing gun and as soon as the edge starts to curl turn circle and go all the way around. 
  • Layer all completed circles, use button or rhinestone for center and sew together
  • Cut small circle of felt for backing and sew pin back

You can find more amazing fabric flower tutorials here at OOPSEY-DAISY

Speaking of black and white, check out this apron from a place appropriately called : FLIRTY APRONS
This one's called "Sassy Black" and I'd actually spend more time in the kitchen just to wear it. I learned about it from one of my favorite hangouts: Tatertots and Jello where there's an opportunity to win one of your choice of Flirty Apron's many cool designs.

Thanks for stopping by today !
