Bloomin' Scraps at Lake Forest Resale Shop


Join me next Tuesday afternoon at the Lake Forest Resale Shop where I am hosting a drop-in upcycling workshop showing you how to turn scraps into beautiful blooms!


With a few twists on a simple technique, you can take strips of ribbon, trim, or scraps of fabric, old men's shirting, or even t-shirts, and stitch them into beautiful blooming flowers.

Add felt leaves or button accents to dress up your flower. Use these flowers as pins or add a wire stem to use as a bloom or an accent for gift wrap. The possibilities are endless!

These fabric flowers are beautiful! I would love to attend your workshop to learn how to make them, but I'm in Georgia. Best of luck at the workshop! Glad others can learn how to make them :)

I sure hope you show us online, as I am in Iowa, and even if I was close, I work all day. (sad face). Have fun!
