Fabric flowers - Clothes upcycling challenge day 28

Well aside from a couple of last upcycles that I will show you at the end of the month (still finishing them !), I don't have any full clothes left - just the left over scraps, and lots of them!
See what I mean?  It's not pretty!
So what am I to do with them?

I thought I'd pick out some of the better pieces and make some embellishments...

Lots of fabric flowers, that I can keep to use here and there when I make something - a bag, a headband, a t-shirt...anything!

There's the toadstool flower:

The by-the-pool flower..

Delicate tulle bloom..

Gecko frayed flowers...

And the I-can-pretend-I'm-real flowers...

Quite pretty - and a nice thing to have a stash of for future projects!

I found lots of tutorials to help me at Tip Junkie and at The Domestic Diva.

If you want to see what I did with those remaining scraps....come back tomorrow!!
Then again on Monday for the Round Tuit linky party,
and on Tuesday for the clothes upcycling Grand Finale - my last upcycle (for now) - with another tutorial I'm just putting the finishing touches to!!

Don't forget to click here to vote for me too!! Thank you!
