Recently, my desire and interest in creating fabric flowers was rekindled after seeing lots and lots of photos of non-floral DIY bouquet. Although I’m not really sure if you can call it non-floral since it is still using flowers, only made of fabric or felt or paper. Anyway, I decided to research again on felt fabric flowers and I found some good tutorials online. Last weekend and this weekend I didn’t have anything to do and since all of my friends seem to be busy as well, I decided to stay in and start again with my DIY. I had some more felt left from the last project we did so immediately I started on my arts and craft. The new tutorials I found are more easier and for me, they looked better that the first one we did. You can check my other felt flowers here.
This is what I came up with this time..
Please don’t mind the mess in the background. These flowers are easier to do although I really find the cutting very meticulous. Luckily these flowers need not require any pattern so I base the measurements and the pattern on my own judgement. But if you are not comfortable with the idea, you can always download and print a pattern.
Anyway, these are the tutorials for these flowers:
I just did a little mix and match with the flowers, variation of sized and style of the petals should do the trick.
Another one I did just this weekend was made out of organza. I’ve seen these tutorials sometime ago but decided against it since I felt that it requires more time and effort (a.k.a more cutting and stitching/gluing). But then, since I’m really eager to give my felt bouquet some elegant accent, I thought I should try it. I was able to buy some organza material last week and I already have the other stuff here at home so I decided to stay at home again during the weekend.
This is what I came up with..
I bought two shades of pink organza just for the heck of using pink, and I just realized it would be a good idea to mix the two colors in one flower. I used these tutorials for this flower:
Although in the tutorials they used a different type of material, the results are practically the same.
Today, I just bought me some more organza, this time I got yellow and orange color and some lace as well. So I better end this entry now and start again with my DIY.
