*Hey everybody! Season 14 of So You Think Youâ€™re Crafty is going to be fantastic. However, it wonâ€™t be starting until the New Year â€“ we decided to let the crafters have a little break and family time too . But I have a great schedule of guest posts and shop spotlights lined up from now until then. Have a great Holiday season and see you all after the New Year!*
Hello everyone! My name is Lori, and I blog at What Remains Now. I want to thank Missy for inviting me
to show you how to make these cute little ornaments made fromâ€¦
â€¦powder puffs! Powder puffs are a great background for all types of fun enhancements.
And my favoriteâ€¦fabric flowers.
Iâ€™m going to show you how to make this super simple folded-petal flower. You can make this flower
from any type of fabric. One of my favorite fabrics to work with is fleece. It has great body, a soft texture
and comes in a lot of fun colors and patterns.
To begin, cut 4 circles from the fleece and a smaller circle of felt that youâ€™ll glue your petals on to.
Another neat thing about this flowerâ€¦the completed flower will be the same diameter as the circles you
cut for the petals, so itâ€™s a great flower to make when you need a â€œjust the right sizeâ€ bloom.
To make the petals, fold one of the circles in half, then fold it in half again. Secure the petal by making a
few stitches at the point. You can also secure the petal with glue, if you prefer. Do this to all 4 circles.
Glue the petals to the feltâ€¦
â€¦ with the points of the petals meeting in the middle.
Add a center. I used a silver button.
Now that you have your embellishments on the powder puffs, add a simple hanger.
I made a small loop of ribbon and covered with ends with a bow. Another fun thingâ€¦You can write a
special message on the satin portion of the powder puff.
Thatâ€™s it. Super easy, super cute, super quick.
A few notesâ€¦I purchased the 3-pack of powder puffs at Dollar General for $1, the buttons, appliquÃ©s
and fabric from Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft, and I used Fabri-Tac glue to adhere all my elements.
Thank you again, Missy, for inviting me to guest post, and I wish you all Happy Holidays.
