My hands are warming up and they are busy again! These beautiful fabric flower ornaments will soon be available for the upcoming holidays on my Etsy shop: eve’s eden www.evepeachart.etsy.com and elsewhere!
These flowers are made in the same way you would make a Mexican Paper Tissue Flower craft except with a little more time and attention given to detail, like the fraying of the edges to give even more texture to this precious fiber flower.
These ornaments can be strung together to create fun whimsical garlands for your fireplace or hung outdoors perhaps at a wedding…oh or maybe held in the hands of a little flower girl!!
You could also hang these lil guys in windows, on doors and on your holiday trees!
You can even tie back your hair with them! Use them as photo props…there are lots of possiblities!
The best part to me is that I salvaged vintage fabric to create these lovely flowers. Fabric that would have been discarded and thrown into our landfills.
The truth is
I almost always mess up on whatever it is I am working on.
And I use my seam ripper A LOT!
I learn so much from my mistakes!
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one. ~Elbert Hubbard, The Note Book, 1927
The man who makes no mistakes does not usually make anything. ~Edward Phelps
Making mistakes simply means you are learning faster. ~Weston H. Agor
We have moved our little garden from right outside our back door to the large field in the back of our property making this years garden a bit bigger. This also created more work but I love it. My happy place is found outside with my hands in the dirt. Here are a few photos I have taken to document our 2010 garden. Our garden also makes a great hands on learning tool for our preschooler Hannah. She loves to wear her dresses and scoop up the fresh handpicked veggies in the bottom of her dress to carry to the kitchen while she sings Snow White songs along the way. Priceless!
