I’m in the process of making a flower girl dress for the daughter of my cousin who’s getting married this April (can’t wait for the wedding!!!! ) and it involves some fabric flowers. I’ve been playing around with different styled ribbon flowers, and fell in love with one that I made this morning. This specific one won’t be going on the dress, but something similar. The best thing about these ribbon flowers are they could notttt get any easier. Literally, all you do is sew stitches across one side, gather it to a circle, and then sew the ends together. I like to add some felt to the back when I’m hot gluing it to something, but it’s optional. Add a button, bead, pendant, etc. to the center, and you’re all done! I think this specific ribbon makes a beautiful flower, as it’s got a kind of crepe paper look to it that gathers nicely. I purchased it from Michaels (it’s part of the Celebrate It 360 collection), and I’m in love with it! I don’t know if it comes in other colors, but I got the ivory one, as the dress is ivory. There’s so many things you can do with these flowers, the possibilities are endless!!
