>Flowers with vintage buttons

>There’s cute flowers all over the blogs lately! I decided to try my hand at some…

and I’m really happy with how they turned out! They’re so easy to make…you can definitely make some in no time! Start with a silky fabric, and follow these instructions (click on the picture to see it enlarged):

All of the fabric was remnants on 70% off sales, and the buttons were from my local thrift store.
I love that these can be used to embellish sweaters (I swear I wear a cardigan EVERY day…this can help make them more pretty!)


Or they can be used to dress up a headband:
You can hot-glue them to a picture frame…cork board…then possibilities are endless!

P.S…I added a LOT of new items to my Etsy shop today! Come check them out! πŸ™‚
