Hi all!
Happy PDT! Today I am sharing a very easy and quick tutorial for a shabby fabric flower. It's been a while since I have made these and I first saw something along these lines from Melissa Samuels.
Here is a layout with one of the flowers.
Supplies you will need:
Different strips of fabric. I used Burlap, Cheesecloth, Muslin, and Lace.


1. Cut fabrics into small strips. The size depends on how big you want your flower.
2. Stack your strips by alternating fabrics throughout.
3. Next, use your twine to wrap around and tie tightly.
4. Start spreading strips outward to form the shape of your flower
5. Trim off excess/shape it up and add your center.
For you center you can use anything! Make a bow out of the twine and glue it down..use a brad or a it off with another flower. The possibilities are endless here!

You can even give it some color by using some mist! I used Shimmerz Caribbean Sunset Spritz.
Hope you enjoyed today's PDT!
