Fabric Flower, now what?


Fabric flowers seem to be all the rage. You'll see them on shirts, clustered on headbands, even hanging onto necklaces. There are numberous how-to's if you want to create your own - I just searched "how to make a fabric flower", read a few things, and whipped one up. I folded a long piece of material in half, tied a knot in the end, and then wrapped around the knot, giving a half-twist and dab of fabric glue occasionally. Anyways, I made it to match the dress featured earlier. But now what? I pinned it in my up-do, but I'm not sold on the look. The fabric was pretty thin, which means the flower turned out kind of small. Maybe I should make a couple more and go with the cluster look to beef it up a little. Do you have scraps of material laying around? Go make some fabric flowers - then you can do something fabulous with them and tell me about it so I know what to do with mine.
