I hope that you all have had a great week. I have spent mine preparing for a craft fair, catching up with old friends who I had not seen for a long time, going for a walk and then fish and chips on the seaside and trying to enjoy every second of sunshine as the weather is still a bit up and down!
Today I am very excited to have my first ever guest post which has been written by Ariella who runs the blog Haus of Ariella and also an Etsy shop. She has written a fabulous tutorial on how to make a fabric flower for you all to enjoy.

How to make a fabric flower (great for putting on bags, hair clips etc)
|One of the ways in which the fabric flower can be used|
-Fabric - light to medium weight fabrics work best; I used satin for this tutorial
-Needle and matching thread
-Large button for the center
-Hot glue gun
-Paper for the template
Fold one of your templates in half over your fabric and cut around the template so that you end up with a circle of fabric. Cut 5 of the large circles and 4 of the small ones.
Take your 5 large petals and sew them together in a circle with the petals slightly overlapping. Do the same thing for the small petals.
|After completing step 4 your flower should look like this|
|Step 6- The final finished piece!|
Take your button (which should be large enough to cover the hole in the middle of the petals) and put hot glue on the edges, then place it in the middle of the flower.
Congratulations! You now have a cool fabric flower to put on purses, hair clips, or whatever else your heart desires!
