Kiwi Lane Designs May Blog Hop and fabric flower tutorial!

If you are looking for my Pinspired Challenges/Crafter's Companion USA, or Ribbon Carousel blog hop posts, just scroll down.  Then come back here and check out this fabulous post--it's good, I promise.  *winkwink*

I am so very excited to be showcasing a fun project using Kiwi Lane Designs templates today!!  You should have arrived here via the (super amazingly talented) Jana Eubank. If you get lost along the way, no worries!  Just go here to get the full list of stops.  Be sure to check out all of the stops on the hop, and leave comments along the way--Kiwi Lane Designs will be awarding one lucky commenter a $25 gift certificate to their online store, so you can get some designer templates of your own!  How awesome is that?!  And, as an added bonus, I'll be giving away 4 6x6 pads here on my blog as well.  All you have to do is become a follower of my blog (over on the right column, it'll say "follow me") and leave a comment on this post saying so.  I'll draw a random name from the comments section and send you 4 pads of gorgeous paper goodness.
  
I was given the super cute Scallops set to work with, and had a fun time thinking outside the box putting this project together.  I had just bought a cute jean jacket for my baby girl, but I didn't like the little flower brooch that came sewed onto it, so I took it off and made my own! If you know me, you know that I don't sew unless I'm forced to, (hot glue all the way, baby!) but using the templates made these flowers come together so quickly and beautifully, so I'll break my no-sew rule this time.  :)

You'll need the Scallops templates, some strips of scrap fabric,  a circle of felt (about 1.5" in diameter), a needle and thread, hot glue gun, and a button or brad.  (I bet you have most of that in your craft space already!) If you are concerned about fraying, or you will be washing the flower, just iron on some interfacing the the back of the material first, or use a product like Fray Check.









Be sure to leave a comment on this post for a chance at the Kiwi Lane prize, and the 6x6 paper pad bundle I'm giving away, then....

Your next stop on the hop is the awesome Jennifer Budge!!
