Fabric Roses

Today is a snow day!  When my boys were young and in school we loved snow days.  My kids are grown and living elsewhere, but I still love having a snow day.  On this snowy morning I'm bringing out some flowers that I "grew" this week.  The pattern is from Joel Dewberry's book, Sewn Spaces.  

The project beginnings ...

Half way there ...
On the first flower I followed the scallop pattern provided. On this one, however, I tried a free-hand scallop. It was much easier for me, and gave it a "unique" edge.  The end project is basically the same.
Now for the finished product -- three flowers in three vases!  Which one do you like best?


  1. Fun! I can't really tell the difference in the pictures so I would definitely vote for the easier route!

  2. Just like real flowers, they are all very pretty! I love the way the top photo looks with your little birdie's the best!
