If you like making fabric flowers, today’s blog book tour should be right up your alley! I’m excited to introduce Indygo Junction’s Fabric Flowers, a book by Amy Barickman.
The book covers 25 different techniques for flowers you can wear or use to decorate with. The flowers can be made easily with coordinating tools from Clover Needlecraft, which takes the guesswork out of making so many different types of flowers. The flowers in this book can be made from regular fabric, silks, wool, upcycled sweaters, denim, T-shirts or ties.
The book even teaches some needle felting techniques (using tools from Clover), so you can find great patterns in this book even if you don’t sew. Don’t miss the wedding bouquet of felted roses.
Today, I’m sharing a flower from the book, the Winter White Poinsettia. You may think about poinsettias only around the holidays, but this felt flower could also look great on a fabric wrap belt, hair bow, springtime wreath (think bright colors!) or as decorations for a wedding or bridal shower. You may want to pair it with a felt version of the ruffly flower for a pretty pairing.
Here’s my version! I made it with red felt, and covered the center stitches with a couple of artificial flower petals and a button. This rice bag is ready for the next holiday season!
