Cute Fabric Flowers and How You Can Make Your Own

The sewing I did this afternoon did not quite go as planned, but I think I'll get better once I've done more of them.  I found this fantastic tutorial for making fabric flowers here: and decided to give it a whirl.  Don't laugh at my flower:

My tiny worktable, so I can watch TV while I sew

My grandmother's antique sewing machine she gave me to work on

My crafty tiara...don't ask because I don't know.
And ignore the clean laundry to my left.

Work in progress

Finished product

My scary looking sewing on the back of the flower

If you sew at all, make sure you check out the tutorial.  Even though it took me 2 1/2 hours to make this droopy flower, it was tons of fun and I can't wait to try another one tomorrow.  If you try this tutorial at any time, please let me know in the comments and take a picture of the flower if you can!
