Shabby Chic Flowers

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I promised that I would show you all some of the flowers I have made whilst at Kath's yesterday.  We had a lot of fun making these flowers and I am in the process of crocheting some flowers and doilies. Once I have a few more to show you I will at a later date.


The above flowers were made after watching Michelle Pipeling  you tube video 
The yellow floral flower is made exactly the same but I made a different couple of flowers by using a smaller circle for the white one and then doing one layer and adding lace to the other one.


These flowers above Kath taught me how to make these. The red ribbon flower has a crocheted flower I made with a button for the centre, the twisted rose is my first attempt and not too bad.  The flower with the black beads are 4 large ovals and then 4 small ovals pinched together in the middle to form petals I added tulle to the base.  The red and white pom pom is red and white ribbon joined together and twisted before joining both ends together.


These are my favourites, the one of the left has been made with my crocheted doilies, I adhered 4 doilies folded to form petals and then placed over the cream lace. To finish off I added a wood button.  The pink flower has pink crocheted doily, lace and then a small crocheted flower with a pearl in the centre.


The one on the left is made using a felt circle for the base with turquoise polka dot material cut into half circle then folded into quarter and arranged around the circle. The next layer is net curtain done the same as the blue.  The centre is a large heart gem.  The next one reminds me of a water lily, the base is green crochet doily and white chiffon, I haven't quite finished with this one yet so watch this space.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit today to see what Kath and I got up to yesterday.

Hugs xxxxx
