Pocket full of Posies!

Tonight I did some straightening up of my fabric.
Yum, right! This is just a fraction of my fabric stash, but, this is the fabric that is visible in my workshop. I only folded fabric that was big enough to make a bag, apron, dress, or whatever!

The smaller pieces went into a plastic tub... 
I even love scraps of fabric because every piece of scrap fabric has a story behind it. I smile when I think of some of the gifts and projects that these fabrics have made, it makes me smile.

With Mothers Day coming up, I decided to make some posies pins with the some of the scraps of fabric. 
I brought out the trusty Big Shot to cut my fabric circles and then started assembling the flowers. 
I made up six flowers tonight. 
I really like all of them! 


I love the layered look of the flowers & the covered buttons for the centers.

I love scraps. Lord knows that if I mess up my fabric that I organized tonight, it will stay messy for a long time! (All you fabric hoarders totally understand what I am saying!) So, maybe I will stick to the scrap bucket for a while!

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I love how all the fabric looks stacked up like that. I truly need to organize my own stash- it's everywhere!
    The flowers are lovely- the covered buttons just make the whole thing IMHO!

  5. Oh I love your fabric stash! I have been wanting to invest in one of those cutting machines that cuts fabric too, such as your Big Shot . . would you recommend buying that one or different one?
