Be sure to link up to my party this Monday, A Marvelous Mess!! The project I favor the most will be featured on my sidebar until the next party!!
For a baby shower I attended this weekend I decided to make some onesie appliques!! So much fun and so simple. A great way to use up some random fabric, too. This were a hit with the mom-to-be and all the giggling gaggle of gals oooo-ing over the gifts. :-) All these took were some heat-n-bond and some random fabric to apply it to. You have got to try this (or, have you already and I'm the last to the party?? Probably.) Still, I'd like to show you the rest of my project. I made them deliberately simple and in kiddo style.
To wrap these up, I used tissue and crepe paper and did something just a tad funky:
I packaged the onesies in tissue paper and taped the flaps in place, then I took the crepe paper and wrapped it quite a few times around the middle of the package (taping the end and beginning of the strip in place).
If you'd like to make the lotus type flower I created, here's what you'll need:
Crepe Paper (trimmed to the shape you see above)
Make a square shape out of an extra piece of paper:
Pinch a petal and glue it onto the side of the square, repeat until you reach the end of the outer edge:
The add another layer on top of it. And a layer on top of that one:
Then, to make the middle of the flower, grab a strip of crepe and fold it in half lengthwise. Begin twisting and hot gluing it into a spiral shape.
Glue that spiral to the center of your flower.
It's a sweet little flower.
Don't forget to join my link party this Monday, the21st.....the Project I choose as my favorite of the week will feature on the top of my sidebar until the next party!!
