Indygo Junction's Fabric Flowers Review + Giveaway!

Tuesday, March 5, 2013


Today I have a fun new book to share with you and a giveaway to boot! Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Indygo Junction's Fabric Flowers by Amy Barickman! You'll find 25 different fabric flowers in this book, made with a variety of techniques.  These flowers are perfect for embellishing your outfits, bags, gifts, home--the possibilities are endless!


For my flower, I choose to use the red prints from my line with Art Gallery Fabrics, Color Me Retro!


I made the Pinked Posy! I added an extra gathered layer so that I could incorporate all three prints! I found the sweet orange button to match at my local Jo-Ann. I think I'll use my flower to embellish a tote bag or perhaps display on my inspiration board!

I had a lot of fun making this flower pin! The instructions were easy to follow and it was good to get myself out of my comfort zone and use fabric in a different way than I'm used to. I definitely need to do more crafts like these. I have my eye on a few other flowers in the book!

You can get a better view of all the flowers in this video! There really is a little bit of everything in this book! Who knew there were so many different ways to make fabric flowers? I'd love to try some of the flowers that use wool!

  33. Your little red flower is so sweet, Jeni! I watched the video -- LOTS of really cute ideas in there. If I had a little girl (instead of two rowdy boys!) I would be making a gazillion of these flowers to go with every outfit, putting them on headbands, barrettes, little felt purses, ballet slippers... Which reminds me, I need to get my butt OFF the computer and UPSTAIRS to my sewing room -- my niece's 5th birthday is in 5 days and I'm scrambling to finish a very girly-girl quilt for her! Wish me luck. :-)
