Me did it.


Let’s be honest here. I was seriously planning on my next post beginning as follows:

“I am done my Fabric Flower Valentine’s Wreath tutorial. You can find it in my garbage can.”

I don’t know what it was, but it was just stressing me out. Maybe just the fact that it’s a craft, and I’m a sewer, not a crafter. Maybe it’s the fact that the first 10 fabric roses took me about 2 hours to make (which I still can’t figure out why). Or maybe it’s that I thought I had a great original idea which apparently every other sewer/crafter thought of as well this year. I really was tempted to just throw it in a bag and hide it in a box somewhere. My problem is that it would still be on my mind, driving me nuts. The saddest part is that when I finally sat down and made the thing, it was actually really fun (except the blister on my thumb from the glue gun — I kind of froze, and didn’t try to get the glue off as it was drying, I just let it harden to my skin while it continued to burn me), and didn’t take much time at all. And I LOVE it, and am so glad I didn’t give up.

So the good news is that none of you will have to poke your heads into my garbage can (unless you want to, ya weirdo). I’m working on the tutorial and it will be up very soon!

Update: you can find the completed tutorial here.

  8. Your wreath turned out great. Reminds me of when I made a ton of these roses out of a sheer fabric for my wedding dress and shoe clips. I couldn’t glue them on though. I had to sew little circles on the back to hide the frayed edges and then I sewed them on the neck line of the dress. Crazy eh?

  9. This is “sew” beautiful, you did a great job!
