I Made Fabric Flowers Too!

So, a while ago I bookmarked an entry I saw on Mamamonster with a great tutorial on how to make fabric flowers, you can find it here. I have been so busy getting ready for the holidays, birthdays, company and well life in general that I forgot all about it.  The kids had a snow day today and I tend to use that as an excuse to take off from my Monday rituals of cleaning, cooking, laundry etc. And I remembered this tutorial.  It is easy to follow and I made these on my first try after just a few tries.  Yes, I did burn a few fingers in the process and cover my nails with hot glue but I think in the tutorial she did as well - so in my mind that means I did it right!

Here's what I started with - just a plain pink knit ear warmer only $1.49 at Walmart:


Here's what I added made with scraps of fabric I got from a friend free:

Here's what it looks like in the end, I glued the flowers on to small safety pins so I can change them up with different flowers I plan on making in the future (tomorrow is another snow day after all.)
