Fabric Roses

There are tons of fabric flowers out there in blogland.  But when I saw the "rose" version I had to bookmark it  - something about them called to me.  The tutorial is over at Snowy Bliss - and be sure to scroll all the way down and see her version in the rectangle container - I wish I could have found one of those.  Oh well.

I bought a few small vases and jars at a thrift store on discount day and thought they'd be cute in my craft room.  I made the flowers for the vase, and it also has buttons in the bottom (I don't think this idea is very user-friendly, but it's sure cute!).  The jars have pins and safety pins. 
I found the little shelf at a garage sale for $2 - it was ugly but with a fresh coat of paint it has a new life!
Here it is in my craft room, by a dresser that's not supposed to be in there:
 And since by know you know the lighting in my craft room is awful, I took it outside for a few pics:
And I just had to include this picture because I took it as an aerial shot looking down on the flowers - I was impressed that I could hold the camera above my head, pointed down, and still get it pretty much in focus:
So anyways, I love craft-blogland and all the ideas you put out there - so I can make stuff like this!!
