1) Cut a 1" wide strip of fabric that is at least 16" long. Does NOT have to be on the bias.
2) Tie a loose knot close to one end of the fabric strip.
3) Wrap the fabric strip around the knot, twisting the fabric strip to resemble petals.
4) Once you like the size of the flower, apply a big blob of hot glue to the bottom of the flower.
5) After glue has cooled cut an organic shape from green felt and sandwich rubber band or clip between felt and fabric flower. Hot glue felt to fabric flower.
6) Your fabric flower is now complete. The only limit is your imagination :)
Saddleback College Fashion department hosted a fashion extravaganza for a couple hundred OC high school students at the end of March. There were guest speakers, lots of people from the fashion industry, fun fashion competitions, and about ten different workshops.
My workshop was creating hair accessories ( read fabric flowers ) and three rounds of 25+ students meant lots and lots of fabric flowers blooming.
I was so impressed with the enthusiasm, creativity, and fabulous flowers created by the high school students.
That's why I LOVE teaching...it's ALL good!

Finally the sun came out after weeks of wet, dreary days in So Cal.
Spending a sunny afternoon on beautiful Coronado I began to notice that the sun wasn't the only bright thing...
Boys were rockin' the hot, brighter than bright, almost neon colors that are predicted to be the big trend for spring/summer.
