Fabric Flowers

I finally got around to making these last week for my mom's birthday..

(they're a bit squished from being under the glass in the back of the car)

I made the flowers in two days
and when my parents arrived from MN.
Chickadee3 (2) gave them to Grandma and I she loved them :)


I followed this tutorial to make them...

These are the fabrics I had on hand...
 
And the stems I gathered from our back yard :) 

Somehow though my flowers did not turn out as open..
But still they are pretty and my mom loved them and I'm happy :)
 


I think I should have made the gathers tighter because
this is how the flowers should have turned out:
 
(not my flowers)

Next time I will not procrastinate
and will spend more time playing around with them..
