Fabric Flowers

I've been having fun learning how to make different fabric flowers.
I'm not really into going to a fabric store and picking out fabric...
Too many choices, I'd spend all day picking up and putting down different things.
I'd end up coming home empty handed, or spending hundreds of bucks
So for now, I just use what I have on hand...
Old t-shirts and dresses, chop chop, snip snip
It's fun!

To be honest, I made the above flowers over a month ago, and they have been sitting in a bin on my floor ever since.  I haven't decided on the perfect use for them yet...
Headbands, clips, brooches
Too many choices.

Today, I learned how to make this felt dahlia.
It was fun, and I like it a lot, but it took a long time.
Time munchers aren't really my thing.
But I'd like to make a few bright colored really large ones for some couch pillows one day!
