DIY Sheer Blooms

Hello, Imaginisce fans. 

It's Tracey here today to share with you my new addiction. 


But not just any flowers.  You see, these flowers are extra special.  Not because they soft and beautiful and polka dot and sheer.  They are extra special because I made them myself.  Grin.  I get extra excited over
things like that and I'm hoping that if you are reading right now you get that and are excited too.  So without further rambling, here they are:

Each bloom is made using 4 identical sheer, polka dot blooms found in the Fashion Fabric Flowers collections. 


-4 identical sheer flowers per flower
-needle and coordinating thread
-i-Bond glue gun
-flower stamens, found at any local craft supply shop

Step One:
-fold one flower into quarters and put a stitch in the bottom to hold it together.

Step Two:
-fold a second flower into quarters and stitch it to the first flower.  Repeat this same sequence with each of the four flowers layering them beside and on top of one another until you have desired fullness.

Step Three:
-using i-bond tool, adhere flower stamens to the center of the flower. 

Here are just a few project ideas using these flowers:

The first one I made as a brooch for my CHA apron.  I simply added a badge Daddy to the back.

Here is the same flower used on a layout.

A small and a large bloom pair nicely to create this headband.

I used the white flower and the new badge/pin combo to make a broach that doubles as a hair accessory.

These flowers really are that simple to make and that versatile to use.  I can see me making many more of these and I hope I have inspired you to try them too.

Stop by MY BLOG to be entered into a drawing for an Imaginisce goodie package.

Have a wonderful day!
