15 fabric flower brooches

concretenprimrosesNovember 18, 2011

I'm having a hard time stopping making these. The folding of the fabric for the petals is very relaxing.

A neighbor who saw them on my facebook page wants to buy one. The problem is I haven't decided on a price yet.

Thanks craftyshe,
Below is a link to one of my blog posts which has a link to the tutorial I used as well as telling the slight changes I made. Don't be discouraged, they are easier than it sounds, its just hard to describe. The video really helps.

Any thoughts on price? $2 to $7.50 have been suggested, lol.
I'm inclined to $5, dh says $6. They take quite a bit of time.

Thanks. Toomuch, all I want to do is make things lately. I'm neglecting everything else (well, except the dog of course.)

Today I have to make the cards for the home show down the street, which is what I'm making all this stuff for. I have about 60 plate flowers so I'm all set on those.

Tomorrow: Mushroom ornaments on spring clothespins.

Uh, and work, oh yeah.

I forgot to say that the flower or star shaped colorful centers I got on Etsy. They are thin clay shapes. I didn't know at the time what i would do with them, but they were on sale and I couldnt' resist. The person who makes them makes a lot of cool similar things.
