Flower Power

I put on this brown tank top and it needed some flare! These flowers were laying around with nothing to do so I started pinning. 

but do you think it's too much? I kinda look like a birthday present! But these fabric flowers can be used for so many things...clip them on a purse, in your hair, to a cardigan...shoes!

I used a different technique on all 3 flowers
So for now I will show you how to make a flower like this. Its so easy and there are so many tutorials
out there but instead of making you go somewhere else to find it I will show you here!

I used only 8 circles and its out of lightweight shear fabric. The circles are about 3.5 diameter. 

Then you just fold them in half and lay them on your foundation circle (mine is the black felt) and once you get to the fourth circle you will tuck it under the first like you would a box (this is #2 step) then secure them down with thread.  So once that is secure i will take the remaining circles and fold it in half, then in half again (step #3) and then I secure those down one by one with the thread...then thats it!
Now just find some little beads to put in the middle. I actually had this flower gem laying around so I just attached it to the middle.
There is so many things you can do with these flowers!
I made a head band out of this one.

I like to place a sturdy piece of pellon on the back to help it keep from floppy around

Then use a glue gun to glue it to the flower then the head band and I use felt.
And there ya go! Target has these for sale for $9.99.
I got 4 head bands for $1. and the fabric was $1/yard. So basically it cost me not even .50 to make one!
Thanks for looking!

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
