I made a ton of these handmade flowers to adorn my revamped wedding dress. 



They're super easy to make so I've also done lots of the petals to sprinkle on tables at my wedding party.

  I've used some ivory satin I had in my stash but I've also been experimenting with blouses I picked up in my local charity shops and they've worked really well too.  The fabric just needs to be man made and I've created a tutorial for how to make them.  Enjoy!

I love it! I think I'll do the same with an old dress, but I'll apply the flowers on a T-Shirt
Thank you for the inspiration

Gorgeous dress re-vamp, and the flower petals look fabulous! Thanks so much for posting the tute--definitely something I'll have to try when it's not 100 degrees out...
