a companion piece: delicious flower petal accessory

i know, most of my posts have been crafts lately. so sue me.and this was supposed to be posted on friday so you could get your craft on this weekend...but i couldn't get my act together. blog fail! and fyi, i had to crop my face out of these as it looked like a sodium festival happened in my face. so puffy.

you know my pillows i've been making...well now it's time to get personal. decorate your couches, but now let us take it to a new level by decorating your clothing. or decorating clothing for a couple of your BFF's birthday gifts. whatev. i really had a hard time giving this away, just saying. sooooo delicious.

so here is the miniature version of the petal pillow craft.
the only thing different besides the smallness is that you put a clip on the back for your t-shirt. i sewed the clip on and then hot glued fabric over it just to keep it all secure.

if you're a wild and crazy gal, put this in your hair for a little extra spunk. i mean, hot glue this to a clothes pin and make a pretty chip clip by all means. just do this freakin' craft.

i leave you with lila and some delicious sun rays. farewell summer...fall is creeping in. hooray for living in a place that we get to look forward to the change of seasons. glorious.

  6. first of all, fall coming soon is not glorious. but what is glorious is your little platypus' outfit and sweet face. oh and the flower is glorious too.
    by the way, did you leave me a dirty message on my mirror? i had to lie to my son and tell him it said something other than what it really said. maybe you didn't, but i'm 98.5349% sure ya did.
    love, jenn

  7. Fall is by far the best season ever. I wish I could live in autumn all year 'round.

    Crafty work with the flower. I need to go hold the fabric store hostage and restock BAD.

  8. Such beautiful pics of beautiful Lila!
    1)This is flower thing is a great idea.
    2)I find it very hard to believe you were looking puffy as the rest of you is looking svelte.
    3) I LOVE how embracing you are of the hot glue. I will have to explore this possibility in my life as I am a very impatient with a needle and thread yet I love things made of fabric (dilema).

  9. hey--
    i found your blog through the city @ redeemer. my college friend spencer and i help out in 3's and had layne in my classroom. the dude is HILARIOUS and don't worry, he hasn't shared too many embarrassing stories.
    great blog + the crafted fabric flowers are way neat.

  10. I am totally going to have to try this! I wish I wasn't getting inspired to do more crafting right now because I am up to my ears in projects, but it is just so ADDICTING. I know that once the baby is born I will not have time for such things, so craft away I will until she finally decides to come into this world.
