Hey everyone! Roree here. It's Tuesday, so that means tutorial time!
I felt like playing around with my sewing machine a bit, so I decided to get out some of my OA fabric and whip up so quick and easy flowers.
To make these flowers, you will need a sewing machine and thread, fabric, and floral wire.
Cut a 2 1/2 x 18" strip from the panel of fabric. Fold it in half and sew a seam along the open edge. Sew another seam alongside of the first, using the left side of the foot as your guide.
Run a length of floral wire through the space between the two stitched seams. Bunch the fabric, as much or as little as you like. Trim the wire and fold the ends over to hold the fabric in place.
Roll the fabric and shape until you get a beautiful fabric rose. Quick and easy, right?
Now all that's left to do is add them to your project.
I created a fun little gift bag using the 9 to 5 collection.
The orange flower fabric from the Fly a Kite collection paired so well with the oranges, greens, and blues in the 9 to 5 collection.
And I couldn't resist using the Little Fliers and Sticky Keys alphas for my sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial. If you get a chance to make some flowers of your own, make sure to share them with us in the OA Flickr Gallery. We would love to see your creations!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
