Pansy and Dahlia Fabric Flower Tutorial

Pansy and Dahlia Fabric Flower Tutorial
Photography by James Ransom for Martha Stewart Living I’m so excited to share this fabric flower tutorial from Martha Stewart Living with you. Such beauties! Easy to make, there’s plenty of time to create them for your Mother, Grandmother or daughter in the next day or two. There is a template for one of the flowers, but for the other, you need only needle, thread and some fabric scraps. Making fabric flowers for mom is a gift that keeps giving because of the plethora of ways to show them off. Look at the gorgeous blooms from my garden that I cut this week. The fabric flower tutorial is brought to you courtesy of Martha Stewart.

Stick Loom Weaving When the sun sets late and the children are outside drinking up the last rays of light, I find myself looking for ways to occupy my hands outside with them while they play. One of my favorite crafts and something that I seem to annually reach for in August and September, are stick loom weavings. It is the combination of long hours outdoors, effortlessly finding the perfect forked sticks, and the need to make something not too precious that requires only a little commitment makes this project a good one. I also like that this craft allows me to drop it easily when I am needed. I can also (sometimes) complete one in a playground/back yard sitting, or at least make a few looms.

Paper Flowers – Anyone Can Do That Japanese Kusudama, this tutorial is featured on Craftuts Anyone can do that, I assure you. The proof: I can, just take a quick look at my result below. And, believe me, I am neither meticulous nor particularly patient. Six paper flowers It got into my head that I needed to make some paper flowers. I don’t know why. But I figured it wouldn’t be a big deal because the Internet is a veritable smörgåsbord of craft tutorials, and all I had to do was fire up Lappy 5000 and pick one out. About 300,000 search results later, I was no longer any more confident in my ability to make a paper flower than I was in my cat’s ability to retrieve his stupid mouse instead of staring at my hand after I throw it. There were just too many choices and although I could compare the photos, they didn’t reflect (1) how good each tutorial was, (2) how closely my flower would resemble the picture, or (3) which flowers would look nice together.
