Fabric Flowers

I am really struggling with getting back into things at the moment, don't get me wrong I am doing the things I should be… house tidy, washing and ironing up to date etc, etc… but I seem to spend very little time sewing or blogging… I can't remember the last time I read one of the blogs I follow.

I have finished my rainbow puffball but you won't be surprised to hear that I still haven't photographed it! …and I have sewn the back panels together for my single quilt but I am yet to sort the wadding out (putting that job off for as long as possible!).

In my defence, I have been working on my cousins wedding stationary on and off and with the wedding looming in a weeks time I'm under a little pressure to finish off the order of service, place names, table plan…!!!

So then talking about the wedding I decided today that I needed to make some fabric flowers to go on tinks shoes! She has the dress and being the girly girl that she is… the bag, the tights, the jewellery (and please mummy can you buy me some makeup – to which the answer is no you're 5!), and a pair of very sparkly shoes which are quite beautiful but slightly the wrong colour for her dress.

I found the perfect colour shoes but they are very very plain, tinks response… "but they don't have sparkles on mummy, I'll wear the other ones!" 

So I asked her if I could make them pretty if she'd consider it!

Guy and I think they are perfect, her dress has big pink and purple flowers on! We think… she'll still choose the sparkly shoes!

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for looking
