Indygo Junction’s Fabric Flowers Blog Tour & GIVEAWAY (closed)!

by This is Carrie on February 13, 2013

Scroll down for the Giveaway Winner!

I’m really excited to be part of Indygo Junction‘s Fabric Flowers blog tour.  Mostly, because I wanted to get my hands on this book. It’s chock full of tutorials for every kind of bloom you could imagine.  Use them to decorate clothing, accessories, home decor and anything else that can’t escape your embellishing touch.  I absolutely love how many of the flowers are made from repurposed materials (from men’s ties to sweaters).

The flower project that immediately jumped out at me was the Vintage Rose Cuffs.  Because the project calls for just small scraps of vintage lace and fabric, I was able to pull all the materials together from my thrift store/estate sale fabric and trim stash quickly

This project also gave me the chance to pull out my vintage button collection to find the perfect shank button closure.  Due to a delay in the mail, I didn’t have time to finish the project before my blog tour date, so check back soon to find the finish product.  If making the project is half as fun as gathering the materials, I’m in for a real treat.

GIVEAWAY!

While you’re waiting, leave a comment on this post for a chance to win your own copy of Indygo Junction’s Fabric Flowers plus some Clover’s Flower Frills Templates.

The winner will be announced on this post  Feb 25th.

And the WINNER IS:

I’d love to win your book. I’m obsessed with flowers. Most of my sewing projects have some sort of appliqué on them, dog coats or stuff I sew for myself. But the clothing I sew for myself has mostly flowers and I’m always looking for creative ideas.

Good luck to all who entered!!
