This is a girl that loves to shop for fabric. Something about walking into a fabric store just gets my blood pumping. There is a special smell and aura of the fabric.....it calls to me. And the fact that I have been sewing for many years and I never get tired of it. (Of course, let's not go into the closet of "sewing projects" bought for and never finished.)
And Saturday night I found the coolest black fabric that is all nubby and wonderful....hmmm.

But I didn't want GREEN ONE....I wanted a RED ONE....ah. It is alot of work being a fashionista wannabee....
So I marched right into Target and got myself a P L A I N red sweater and strolled right over to the red matching t shirts and got one of them too. (I even bought a size SM which I have NEVER DONE). And the total price was still 10 bucks below the price of the phantom red sweater in the afore paragraph.
Then I came home and cut that t-shirt right up and stitched it on....
I sewed 3 different sized petals on with triangle stitch patterns. I wanted a rose look.
And I think it turned out pretty darn cute...take that catalog, take that stores all over with NO RED sweaters! I WIN.

See those "handles"? Uh, there are too many....this cowgirl couldn't do it...no sir. I had to perform a radial mastecomy..... I felt much better.
And take a look at that hip...the black markings have a special code.
If you know what year the "saints came marching in"....you will get it.
Now onto the "heads".

So here is my first tutorial....how to make these cute-easy, flowers.
Get out your scraps of cotton, silk or cotton poly prints.and then tear them into 1 1/2" to 1 inch strips of varying lengths.
Cut out a few circles of your spare felt, in a neutral color. Do several different sizes no larger than 1 1/2" in diameter.
Heat up the ole glue gun and then take your first strip and tie a knot in the end. No fancy smancy...just a good old knot.Pull it to the end of the strip and then glue it in the center of the felt circle. Smash it down. This is the center of the flower.
Now just roll the fabric into a tube and twist it as you glue around the center...
When you have filled the whole felt, clip off the end and glue the tail behind on the back.
Aren't they just cute? I then just grabbed a spare dollar store headband and hot glued them right on molding them just a bit to curve over the band so they don't stick up.
Then I found my cutest girl to model them for me....cute huh???
