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!
