I adore these shabby chic flowers that are made from cheffon. I cannot find a tutorial though Sad
 They look machine sewed but I cannot figure it out, could anyone help me?

Thanks for asking this; I love these flowers but never thought of making my own.

It wasn't until I saw the tut posted by CraftyChef that I made a connection; that's a ribbon flower technique!  I'll bet I could convert lots of ribbon flower tuts into fabric flowers.  Candace Kling wrote a great book on reproducing vintage ribbon flowers.  I have it here...somewhere...

They also sell those flowers by the yard in the trimming/ribbon section at hobby lobby and other craft stores.
