Some More Fun With Fabric Flowers


A few posts back, I mentioned I was going to a "Black and White" party for New Years Eve.  As usual my outfit was mostly back - I needed some white to stay within the theme.  I made this adorable necklace for the party and for my attempt at black and white.  I found a great tutorial on Flamingo Toes blog, she made a beautiful Anthropologie inspired necklace.  I tried to do a no sew necklace but I had to break out some needle and thread for the small beads (and I so tried to avoid this by searching my house for the perfect button or trinket to hot glue to the center of the flower - no such luck.)

Here are some of my supplies for the necklace:

Fabric
Felt
Glue Gun
Old Necklace
Seed Beads
Needle and Thread

First I sketched a flower  pattern on the back of the fabric and then cut it out. You need three flowers for the necklace. For the larger flower, you want to cut out 4 flowers and for the 2 smaller flowers you need to cut out 2 for each flower (4 total)

Now you assemble.  For each flower, place the fabric pieces on top of each other rotating them a bit as you lay them down and then you sew your beads into the center of the flower.


Then cut out a piece of felt and glue the flowers to it, be sure you cant see the fabric from the front.  I then cut an old necklace in half and hot glued the two end to either end of the felt.

And my necklace was done.


I also made Sweet Girl a headband for the party using this method.
