      I am going to run out of ink in my printer cartridge if I keep printing out all these wonderful tutorials. Want to make some fabric flowers to see what I can do with them. Your tutorials are wonderful, easy to follow. Appreciate that very much. I have so much fabric in my stash I could be making flowers forever. Then see what I can do with them. Thx so much for sharing and making this easy for so many.

      I LOVE these. I can't wait for a couple of days off of work to make some. Think I'll put together a wreath with some. Thanks for the inspiration.

      What a beauty...Love it! Having trouble finding "blank" barrettes...love yours! Walmart too? Are they in the craft section? Our Walmart is "expanding" to get groceries (FINALLY!) and I am hopeful that we will sell crafts and fabric too---have to wait until 2012 to find out though!

      I've made a lot of fabric flowers for hair accessories, but I've never seen a flower like this. I can hardly wait to make these with my daughter. It will be such a fun change from the ones we've been making. Thank you so much for posting a tutorial, your directions are so easy to follow.

      LOVE this flower! I'm headed to get fabric today (my Walmart is carrying fabric again! Hallelujah!!) and I'll be sure to keep this in mind!

      I'd love to spend one hour in the creative part of your brain. I think I'd have enough inspiration to last me the rest of my life. :)
