Sunflowers, sunflowers!


I found this cute sunflower idea and they were so easy to make! I sat down with my muslin and Fall fabrics and got to work! I think they turned out so cute! I am going to make a few more for pin cushions and attach them to springs and clay pots but for now - these are the ones I finished. I just inserted little white lollipop sticks into the bottoms and VOILA instant flowers!

I had this cute water pitcher on hand and just stuck them down in it. I couldn't believe how easy they were to make. These are perfect to make out of those scraps of fabric we all have around!

Nicole,
Thanks for coming to visit my blog and adding me to your favorite's list. I've added you to mine also.

The sunflowers you made are so cute! I have that pattern but haven't made them yet. Seeing yours makes me want to make them now, but I'm working on some tote bag/purses for my big show coming up in October.

I use to have a shop from 1989 to 1993. We use to live in a small little town that was full of antique and country gift shops. Sometimes I missed it, but I had to close it when we decided to move back to the town that we grew up in. I've been doing craft shows for 24 years, so I guess I do have a traveling shop. LOL.. The only bad thing is I have to keep setting it up and taking it down. Sure miss the days of just closing the the day and locking it!

Hope you're having a great day and I'll be back to visit often.
Cindy
