Making It With Allie – Featured Blogger - Mama Says Sew

Welcome everyone!
Can you all bellieve we are half way through February already?!
I sure can't!

I am super excited to bring you a Featured Blogger for this week's
Making It With Allie Party!

I want you all to meet Terra, from Mama Says Sew!
You will love her projects like I do, I am sure!
After you link up your projects, hhop on over and say HI to Terra for me!

Hi everyone!  I'm Terra from Mama Says Sew.  Since a picture is worth a thousand words, instead of telling you about my blog, I'll show you some of my favorite projects.
 
              Ruffle Flower Leggings                                  Ruffle Flower Scarf                                         Burlap N' Blue Lamp    
Okay, now on to the real purpose for my visit here.
Today I am going to teach you how to make these fabric flowers. All you need for this project is a solid colored fabric, some tulle {which is optional!} and a glue gun. For the red one pictured, I left out the tulle {because I couldn't find any that matched}.                      
Start by cutting circles.  You need 9 circles of your solid fabric and 8 of tulle.
For the first 6 circles, start by stacking your solid color on your tulle.
Fold in half, with the tulle on the inside.
Wrap the ends into a cone shape and secure with a dab of glue.  The arrow shows you where your glue should go.  If you press with your fingers, the glue should hold all layers of fabric.  Be careful not to burn yourself!
Here is what the cones should look like:
After you've made 6, glue them onto another one of your circles.  I just used a very thin line of glue down the "seam".
The last two circles we'll make a little differently.  Start by folding them in half the same way as the other circles.  Then fold them in half again so they're now folded into quarters.  Secure with another dab of glue, as shown by the arrow.
Glue the last two folded circles into the center of your flower and there it is! This is a super fast project.
I think mine looks great paired with this pretty jacket I picked up at a thrift store for 50 cents. Yep, that's right.  Go thrift stores!
You're welcome to stop by my place anytime! Thanks for having me today Allie!

  13. Allie, sorry to hear we have so many "bad" things in common - allergies to onions, the environment, mold....thanks for the info on acasia - hubs has MAJOR hayfever and often sinus issues. Never knew to avoid that ingredient while we spend the rest of lives reading labels. I'll just add that to it! lol Also, good luck on your MRI - hope they figure out why they can't get your thyroid regulated. I'm sure you're tired of feeling pooped out!
