Spring Flower

Flowers flowers everywhere and now I have one to call my own. Seems everyone is making amazing flowers from paper, ribbon, fabric and various other materials. I set out on a quest to make a flower for the mom's in my life for Mother's Day. Yes it was a miracle that I planned ahead and actually completed the design before the last hour.
As for this flower I made it out of a lace fabric (a drapery lace to be precise)a brad (Stampin' Up! -Antique Brads, 117273 $5.95) for the center and cream canvas fabric for the leaves painted them with fabric paint (
Tulip® Soft® Fabric Paint). I found the paint allowed me to shape the fabric as it dried and made it a little stiffer. win win!
This particular flower I have put a pin back on so the mom's can wear them but you could put it on anything.
