Falsie Flower

Fake Flowers have been popular for a while now, but you know the Midwest...it takes a while for fashion fads to hit. (They're really called Shabby Chic Flowers, but I call mine Falsie Flowers).   Anyway, when I saw a fabric flower on a military jacket, I loved the look.  Then I noticed one on the strap of a great purse. I started playing around a little bit with making flowers.  I haven't yet hit the one I want for the jacket I bought, but this one is really pretty and it looks great on my black sweater.

I'm going to putz around with more.  I have a couple of old denium shirts that I wore to death and I think their soft worn fabric will be great.

Beautiful Flower Carol and congrat on winning the crazy quilt cat doll. Yay! I have never been able to make flowers and I also have a hard time painting them. You've done a great job. Have a great week.

I LOVE the flower you made, Carol! I must try one with a lovely print fabric (and in those colors!) - much prettier than the ones I made in CT. And congrats on winning Pam’s CQ cat! You’re a lucky contest winner, aren’t you?? Hugs, Cathy

This is really pretty. I think a bouquet of them would look nice. Can't wait to see what the denim ones look like.

Kristen said...

Oh a denim flower! I have to see that! I love embellishing shirts too but I will say this flower makes a great statement!

Little Treasures said...

Wow!This is fabulous!
As I am mad about fabric flowers this looks so inspiring!

Very pretty and would look nice no matter how you use it - on clothing or purses. Have fun with them.

Wow, your flower is so pretty! I love it! I wish I could give it a try but right now I've got too many WiP as it is lol... And yes, the peachy pink sweater is knitted (just plain jersey stitch, as it's a "busy" yarn).
Thank you for stopping by at my place and hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!
