this from Angie at the Country Chic Cottage and fell in love! I had seen it in the PB catalog and thought it would be fun to make, but she just makes it so simple that I had to do it!
I did a few things different so I will give you my simple tutorial so that you can make on for yourself!
I own a Big Shot by Sizzix - now I don't use it nearly often enough, but it sure came in handy here. And it is quite sturdy. Here is Thing #5 standing on it - this is what happens at my house when I turn around for more fabric.
I raided my stash of fabric for all the white remnants that I had. There were some with patterns and some plain. I cut them into roughly 3 inch squares. I then used my flower - build a flower die cut (well I only used on of the dies on the pad) and I proceeded to cut a ton of flowers out. This was actually not very hard, depending on the fabric I could cut 6-8 pieces at a time. And my girl wanted to help, so I let her. I ended up cutting about 300.
This is a small pile of them about 100 - and it took 20 minutes to do all of these.
I then took three different sized embroidery hoops and painted them white, tried to tie them together. This proved to be the hardest part of this whole project. But I finally got it done!
After that I sewed my flowers into one big row, one after another. I did not get a picture of this, but you can look at the chandy and see what I mean. I actually did this at several different times because my kids were home from school and at our house after school is chaotic.
The next part was easy, I just started gluing the flowers to the hoops and then cut them to the desired length I wanted. and then you end up with this beautiful thing!
