Here are all the flowers I made on our road trip today! A new trick I tried on some of them was stacking or clustering different buttons, either to highlight key colors in a print or to add a little extra a-la-mode to a solid. Click here for a list of supplies and a link to the tutorial. ♥
A cushion covered with these flowers would be awesome!
Ooohhh . . . yes!!! Thank you for the idea, and hopefully you see it here soon! 🙂
I love them and what a great use of road time!
Thank you, Tami! And the best part was that I could still chat and look at scenery while I worked on them! 🙂
You’re so efficient! What a great, containable activity for passenging (i.e., the act of being a passenger :))!
Love them all! So cute! But ma favorite is the peach flowers on black… 😉 how can you sew on a car trip?? I can knit and crochet, but sewing… I will be afraid to poke myself too often lol!
Thank you! And I did poke myself once or twice . . . 🙂
How pretty! Flowers always make me smile. 🙂
Aww . . thank you! Me, too! 🙂
Those are beautiful.
Thank you! I LOVE 15-minute projects that turn out like this! 🙂
I love these!! I’m going to try it and also your t-shirt pillow idea!! Thank you for sharing them!!
Thank you! You’ll have so much fun making both! 🙂
Gorgeous! I’m so making some of these to pin to my little girl’s clothing.
Aww . . . can’t wait to see them! 🙂 Thank you!

These are so stinkin’ cute! I want to make some now, though I have no idea what I’d do with them once they were done.
You can sew/glue pins on the back and wear them on sweaters or coats or hats . . . sew/glue clips on the back or sew/glue them to headbands and wear them in your hair . . . sew them on throw pillows or curtains . . . glue them on lampshades or bulletin boards . . . tie them on packages in place of bows . . . make smaller ones and sew them on little girls’ clothes . . . the sky’s the limit! You’ll have fun! 🙂

These are great, a fantastic way to use up scraps and an excuse to rummage through the button box
Thank you! I just keep making them . . . they’re perfect for small gifts when I go to lunch with my friends . . . or to decorate packages . . . or to wear on a cardigan . . . 🙂
Also nice as hair clips and to pin onto your handbag
I agree! I’ve stitched some onto headbands, too . . . so cute! 🙂
