Fabric Flowers

Ever wonder what to do with your left over fabric from that amazing quit, apron, or tunic shirt you were making? Or, not to great with a sewing machine, but have a favorite piece of clothing you’ve worn down and can’t bear to get rid of because of the fabric? Here’s an amazing idea! Make flower boutonnieres/bouquets! Here’s a step by step tutorial from Once Wed DIY:

Check out Once Wed for all the details, but here’s all you need:

Scraps of Fabric (100% cotton fabric, in coordinating colors)
Fabric Coated Wire (also called millinery wire)
Ribbon (1/4 ” wide)
Floral Corsage Tape
Mod Podge (decoupage glue)  (original formula, matte finish)
Pinking Shears
Sponge Paint Brush
Wire Cutters
All of this for about $13.77… which gets you 36 flowers. Now, tell me where you can find a bouquet of 36 flowers for $13 bucks!
