Fabric Flowers with Shari Carroll

Happy Sunday everyone! It’s Shari here with a technique to create fabric flowers using Spellbinders dies designed by Tammy Tutterow.

These flowers are a fresh departure from flat paper, the frayed edges and crumpled fabric add texture with a hint of whimsy! I used white fabric that had a small white pattern. When I started out, I wasn’t sure if the design would soak up the Abandoned Coral color or resist it. To my delight, it resisted giving me a white pattern!

I did sew just a little to add folds to the flowers. I promise, it’s really easy to do. You could use glue or glue gun for this as well. The stamped Cheesecloth background sets the stage for the flowers adding a garden feel.

I finished off the card by adding an enamel dot to the centers of the flowers and a simple greeting. Clean and simple with texture!

I have filmed a video to show you the process, you can watch it below or on our YouTube channel.
