I’ve been MIA for a good while…and I’m so sorry! But I promise I have good excuses!! As you all know, it’s wedding season! And I’ve had two very good friends get married this summer, and both weddings I’ve been a bridesmaid in as well as had a rather large hand in helping to plan. But that’s not even the best reason I’ve been gone…I’m starting a wedding planning business! So exciting! My future mother-in-law, who lives in Hawaii, and I are teaming up to start a local and destination wedding planning company, called Weddings Here & Away. It’s all still in the works, but I can’t wait to get into this crazy (and crazy fun) industry professionally. The website will be up soon so I’ll definitely be keeping everyone posted on that. In the meantime, if you’re planning a wedding in the Pacific Northwest or Hawaii, don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com!
Alright, so since I’ve been gone for so very long, I come bearing gifts…in the form of an awesomely easy and fabulous fabric flower tutorial. One of my friends, whose wedding I mentioned above, asked me to create these to jazz up our bridesmaids dresses and now I’m addicted to these things. They’re so easy and one yard of fabric will get you about 7-9 flowers, depending on how big you make them…and at about $7.00/yard (depending on your fabric), that’s less than a dollar each! Fabulous indeed! Now, onto the tutorial:
Beginning with the end you started sewing with, start to roll the fabric
into a flower shape, securing it with stitches every few “rolls.”
This is super important- you don’t want it to fall apart! Make
sure the stitches go through every layer of the fabric.
These flowers are ridiculously easy and I can’t wait to see how they look on the dresses. The wedding is the 28th, so I’ll post pictures as soon as I have them! Let me know if you have any questions!
Promise to keep you posted more often-
