I have been busy having fun making samples for my "Embellishing with Fabric Flowers" class and I thought I'd share a few with you. I just LOVE yo-yo flowers, they are so versatile. I usually make pins and hair clips out of them so I thought I'd challenge myself and step up my game a little. Here are some of the results:
I made this with a larger circle (about 7 inches) using fabric from Heather Bailey's Pop Garden collection. I love his pillow so much I am considering making a matching quilt....maybe even a yo-yo quilt.
Yo-Yo Flowered Jeans
This was definitely one of those projects that left me wishing I had a little girl to put them in! I simply used fabric from Sandi Henderson's Ginger Blossom and Farmers Market collections to add a few yo-yo flowers. Then I threw in some rick-rack I had on hand, added the ruffles and a matching belt and voila! Not bad for a $9.99 pair of jeans.
