Fabric Flowers

I made these fabric flowers as decorations for a baby shower I hosted.  They now decorate my daughter's room.  I generally followed this awesome tutorial at Going So Crazy.  I only did two things differently:

  1. As soon as I shaped the strip into a flower, I put a few stitches through to hold the flower just the way I wanted it, and then put the button on. 
  2. I skipped the floral tape step and simply used fabric glue to attach the flowers to kabob skewers from the grocery store.  

I think they look pretty cute, especially in the vintage milk glass vases.
