DIY Cute and Easy Fabric Bows

Hey Everyone! I'm back with another DIY for you. I know, I know, you've seen these fabric flowers everywhere but I just thought it would be fun to do something from my Fabulous Chev'. 
They're easy to do and takes little to no time.


Materials
Material of your choice Glue Gun Pin Pendant or Jewelry of your choice A "Sturdy" piece fabric for the backing  

Step 1: I free handed my template 4 inches. 



I made 22 in all. You can make them as thick or thin as you like. I wanted my fabric flower full.


I cut 2, 3 inch circles for the backing, then used a tealight to make another circle. It doesn't have to be neat you won't even see this.


Fold a piece of fabric and fold in half



Then fold it again



Hot glue tip and place on along inner circle.


.
Just follow the circle all around



Fill in inner circle just like you did the outer. 



Done!!!!


 Just add a charm of your choice and all finished.

First, let me introduce you to Chev'.. A breath of fresh air, isn't she?  I went to Wally World for something totally different and happened to stumble upon Chev'. She was just a wavin' at me, trying to get me to notice her. I was to busy on another rack looking at fabric I intended to procure but she was justa wavin'. Then, I looked to the left and she almost knocked me off my feet. I actually ran to her, picked her up and literally turned her around in my arms. I wish you could have seen it, it was like a scene out of a movie. LOL!! The 3 men in the boot aisle must have thought I was out of my damn mind.
I didn't care because I knew we belong together. She was $3.00 a yard and guess what? She was in the Home Decor aisle..  She's thic…

Sneak Preview Of What's Coming Next..

Hey Everyone! This is my second time posting today, I hope it's not too much.. But I just wanted to give you a teaser of what coming next on my blog. I know you've seen the DIY and Cooking, but now it's back to sewing. 
I fell in love with the fabric and had to make a statement with it. 



Now all I have to do is put the pieces together, tweak her a little, hem and maybe add one more thing. Then she'll be done and I'll have a pictorial for you all by the mid-week.
