I decided to make some fabric flowers today. I've made the lollipop kind before, but never really tried any other styles. I found these great fabric quarters on sale at Wal-mart for $0.75 each, and I had a lot of fabric scraps laying around, so I decided to spend the day crafting.
Unfortunately, I have really bad allergies (the kind that make your brain fog up as well as your nose run), and I wasn't paying any attention at one point, so I kind of stuck my finger into a fresh pile of hot glue.
Behold, the injury:
Yes, that is a blister. It's a bit blurry because I can not take very good pictures with my left hand.
But, the injury was worth it. I ended up making probably around ten flowers total, but I only took a picture of five of them (Don't know why...I wasn't thinking).
Here they are, in all of their glory:
I have no idea what I am going to do with them, though. I rarely wear accessories. My mom said that I should sell them to raise money for next year's missions trip. For now, though, I just wanted to share them with you guys.
What do you think? Any tips and pointers that you have to offer?
Update: I made some more flowers but didn't really want to start a thread for them. Thought I would share:
