This is really annoying. I was composing this same entry last night and I was almost done when I posted a photo everything went berserk! It’s annoying. So now I have to repeat everything I’ve written.. Or typed, that is.
Moving on.. Recently, my desire and interest in creating fabric flowers was rekindled after seeing lots and lots of photos of non-floral DIY bouquet. Although I’m not really sure if you can call it non-floral since it is still using flowers, only made of fabric or felt or paper. Anyway, I decided to research again on felt fabric flowers and I found some good tutorials online. Last weekend and this weekend I didn’t have anything to do and since all of my friends seem to be busy as well, I decided to stay in and start again with my DIY. I had some more felt left from the last project we did so immediately I started on my arts and craft. The new tutorials I found are more easier and for me, they looked better that the first one we did. You can check my other felt flowers here.
This is what I came up with this time..
Please don’t mind the mess in the background. 😛 These flowers are easier to do although I really find the cutting very meticulous. Luckily these flowers need not require any pattern so I base the measurements and the pattern on my own judgement. But if you are not comfortable with the idea, you can always download and print a pattern. 🙂
Anyway, these are the tutorials for these flowers –> DIY Felt Bouquet and Bout by The Bride’s Cafe, Felt Rose Buds by Creative Jewish Mom and Felt Flowers by Infarrantly Creative. I just did a little mix and match with the flowers, variation of sized and style of the petals should do the trick. 🙂
Another one I did just this recent weekend was made out of organza. I’ve seen these tutorials sometime ago but decided against it since I felt that it requires more time and effort (a.k.a more cutting and stitching/gluing). But then, since I’m really eager to give my felt bouquet some elegant accent, I thought I should try it. I was able to buy some organza material last week and I already have the other stuff here at home so I decided to stay at home again during the weekend.
This is what I came up with..
I bought two shades of pink organza just for the heck of using pink, and I just realized it would be a good idea to mix the two colors in one flower. I used these tutorials for this flower –> Fabric Flowers by Emily’s Little World and Chiffon and Tulle Flowers by Project Wedding. Although in the tutorials they used a different type of material, the results are practically the same.
Today, I just bought me some more organza, this time I got yellow and orange color and some lace as well. So I better end this entry now and start again with my DIY. 🙂
