Feature Friday - flower corsage

While there are many fabric flower tutorials out there in blogland, I loved this one by Vanessa of Vand Co when I saw it.  Why?  It looks great and she didn't sew it.  Hot glue, baby!..and that means it's a lot less complicated.  I love how they look on a purse, but especially on a cardigan.

So, I whipped up a couple.  I tried one in felt, which I loved.  I made the gray one for my husband's mom for mother's day. 

Instead of folding over the edges of the petals, I cut them to be rounded and burned the edges to seal it.

I love felt and this mustard color.  However, it's going to be a while before I get to wear it.  I think my little helper decided to play with it and I can't locate it now.  Bummer! 

Thanks for the great tutorial, Vanessa!  If you haven't been to her blog, head on over.  She has fun ideas and she is hilarious.

I am so excited about some of the projects I have lined up for next week.  I'm finally going to have the final project in our playroom to show you!  Woo-hoo!  On another day I have a really cool boy accessory.  Stay tuned!  Anyhow, that's it for today.  Thanks for reading.
