Fabric Lace Shabby Chic Vintage Inspired Flowers

Hi Friends! I've been obsessed with making fabric and crochet flowers! LOL! Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to make complete projects with the fabric flowers I've been creating. I'm hoping I'll be able to squeeze in the time this week to make a few cards and maybe an altered box using some of the flowers I've made!

I had bought the purple eggplant chiffon fabric initially to sew a few scarves with them but decided to cut them up and sew some fabric flowers instead. With the set above, I had sewn lace to the fabric and created flowers topping them with gold vintage pearl buttons. I listed this set in my Etsy shop.

With this set, I sewn an off white tulle to the fabric and added faux pearl to the center.

I've started crocheting motiffs (off white) initially to add to my handmade cards. They have a scalloped mini doily appearance and I was going to layer a circle sentiment or image over it but realized they look like flowers when using it as a layering embellishment, They fit nicely as an addition on to my lacey flowers. I also added a smaller crochet flower and a decorative gem to the center. I like the shabby chic look to the flowers!

I did the same thing with this set but I used a my crochet Stampin Up Melon Mambo dyed flowers and a pink decorative gem instead. I listed all these flowers in my Etsy shop. I'm hoping this week I can create finished projects using the flowers so you can see what you can make with them. They make for great embellishments for head bands and hair accessories. Maybe I'll work on making headbands with them. I'll see. . .:) I'm not very good at planning. I usually end up doing something other than what I plan to do so it's best I don't plan on anything. I like being spontaneous when it comes to creating!

Anyway, stop by my Etsy shop and check out the new items I've listed so far! Here is the link to my shop: Inspired & Unscripted.
