haha Cheesy I suspect fabric flowers are gonna be a major trend for this and the following season!
well, here's the link to a thread I posted http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=387743.0

If your flowers are not too big, you can stick them on ring findings like I did (all thought that doesn't seem like a great color to wear on your fingers to me, neeeeh I'm just too picky!)
A brooch is always a safe choice, but I mostly forget them in my drawers and never wear them! You can of course sew some flowers on a dress or a t-shirt if you like.
I've also seen many girlies wear them as hair accessory looking real nice.
Lately, this idea of using fabric flowers on chain or pearl necklaces has stuck in my head, but I still haven't tried it.

Here's a few flowers I made.

The one on the right is beaded and is probably gonna end up as a hair pin Cheesy

2  Scrap fabric bangle in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by nahna on: August 14, 2011 08:58:34 AM
Here's another idea of using scrap fabrics left from other projects!

I can't even remember why I bought this transparent plastic bangle a few years ago! Maybe I found it at a bargain price or something, but now I find it really ugly. So I knew I had to do something with it!


I had this beautiful floral patterned fabric left from a skirt I shortened. The piece had some buttons, which I took off, and was to to three long parts. Ι folded the sides and ironed them, because I didn't want any loose ends. You can see the top piece still has the pins. In some cases, for security, I also glued the folded sides.


I saw that many prefer to use ribbons. This surly takes out all that trouble of "hemming" the fabric, but my main purpose of doing this is using all those scraps that fill my drawers! So, the process onwards is quite standard. Wrap the fabric around the bangle till the end securing it with glue from time to time. (Don't you love that craftster quote saying "Made with love. And glue. Lots of glue!")


By the way, if you don't have a bangle, or you don't want to waste one, you can make one on your own using lol-lol 's tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=123500.0
Here's the final project!


Thanks for looking!

thank you lola ^^

Here's some action pictures too as rings!



I especially like how the red one came out. I used a nylon ribbon which was much easier to handle than other fabrics and made stable corners simulating the flower's petals.

4  Little Fabric Flower - use it everywhere! (+ sorta tutorial) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by nahna on: August 06, 2011 02:08:03 PM
First post hehe Cheesy I've been watching you all sharing and explaining your great ideas and I felt I should give a little something back to the community! (anyways, my knowledge is scarce in sewing or crafting.)

So here's a really easy way of creating lovely little fabric flowers to be used practically anywhere! rings - necklaces - clothing - hair accessory!



All you need is a ribbon of fabric about 2 or 3cm wide, the length is accordingly to the size of the flower desired (you can also use scrap fabric from other projects).



Here I used a satin ribbon ~15cm long. I burned the edges a little so they won't wear out and also because I like the shiny effect! Well, I rolled one edge to make the center of the flower and then randomly twisted the ribbon around it. Finally I brought the ending underneath the flower and made a few stitches to hold it in place. If you like to add some beads, that's the time to do it!

The whole process only takes about ten minutes! It's a real quicky!

Thanks for looking crafters! I would really love to see what you'll come up with if you try this yourselves!
