Well, now that you all see what a week holds I want to hear from you! Start e-mailing in those ideas! The e-mail address and instructions are on the side bar and the category specifications are at the bottom. Hope to hear from you! :)
Here is an ADORABLE flower craft sent in by Samantha H. of IL.
Thanks for sending it in Samantha!
*~ Fabric Flowers ~*
~Light Weight Fabric Scraps (like a soft cotton)
~Covered Button Kit ( size small or medium) I got mine at Wal-Mart.
~Small round lid or juice glass
~Washable fabric markers
~ Fabric Glue
Step 1:Iron fabric until it is smooth. Any deep wrinkles of creases will make your flower petals come out uneven.
Step 2:Now trace 3-4 circles out of your fabric.
Step 3:Cut each circle out and fold it in half
Step 4:Iron each halved circle
Step 5:Now open up each circle, and using your rotary cutter, cut along the crease. If you don't have a rotary cutter, scissor will work fine as well.
Step 6:Now you should have 6-8 halves, depending on how many circles you cut out. Flowers in nature always have uneven numbered petals, so I cut out 3 and a half circles to make 7 petals. But do whatever you prefer.
Step 7:Fold each half circle in half again, right sides together, and sew up the straight edge.
