Couture Flowers

image All comments left in the month of May is automatically entered to win a Lisa Leonard necklace.  So leave me a comment! 

 

You all are going to flip!  FLIP!  You know how flowers on anything is so hip right now?imageWell, I met Tomato Baby at Bloggy Boot Camp.  What a beautiful woman.  We met as the day was winding down…….I so wish I would have met her early in the day.  She was on her way home with a migraine and I was heading to dinner and riding with women I didn’t know.  She was wearing this cute top with a set of cute organza-ish flowers on it……..she bought it so she could copy it.  I hope she doesn’t mind me saying that……..I mean the fact that she could even copy it had me impressed!  

Well, not only did she make them……..she is sharing it with us!  What a gal!

Make Couture Flowers!

I can do this part………image And I can manage this part too…………image Now we’re talking…….I love playing with fire……imageI think I have a couple of bobby pins around here…….image   I’m sure she didn’t need to buy that shirt to copy the flowers…..I think it was just an excuse….because anyone who can create these amazing works of art below doesn’t need to copy…..Dang…..would you look at those cool bags?  Don’t let Laurie from Tip Junkie see it.

 imageI’ll be heading through Idaho his summer…….where Jan (tomato baby) is moving…..maybe we can meet up then?  Would love to hang with her.  Maybe some of that talent will rub off?

Ok, off you go…….go surprise her.  Make me look good.

I've made these using my heat gun. I used tweezers to hold the fabric so I wouldn't burn my fingers. I worked pretty well. Her flowers are beautiful.

These flowers are so delicate--just the thing to decorate my summer straw hat. You make it seem so easy that I'm off to find just the right organza. Thanks for such clear directions.

Oh, sooo totally glad my BBGF (best blogging GF), Gwen, put a link on her blog here, as I just gave her some of my organza fabric and told her we were supposed to use it to make these flowers - now maybe we'll BOTH try them!!! SOOO gorgeous (as it that fabulous necklace, which I'd be beyond thrilled to own)!!! TFS!!!

Sarah said...

jan ~ tomatobaby said...

Hey Kim!

Your peeps are so creative
and sounds like some are
gonna-give-it-a-try!

Thank you for all
of your kind words
... and thank goodness no ...
traffic ticket when realizing
my cellphone is loading your
blog feed-update! YIKES

Think I could have gotten out
of it ... "really officer ...
I was just being notified that
a totally-awesome blogger has
just featured my flower
tutorial ... and I didn't see
you in front of me ..." and
then reaching for my phone I'd
say, "Do you want to look?"

{yea ... right ... remember
where I live!}

Thanks again my friend ~j.

Sharra said...

I have made these and I LOVE them, for an added flair add some feathers.

kimmysue said...

I'm confused. Do you sew these together after you singe the edges? Pin them? I'm sorry- it's been a long day and I think I must be missing something in my tiredness. I think they're lovely, and would love to do this, so thanks for the instructions.
