It is so beautiful! I am thinking of doing my own fabric bouquets too!! Did you find any tutorial or did you learn it all improvizing?

It looks GREAT!  Very soft and romantic!  

 

@MrsWeddingbliss: There are LOTS of tutorials online.  I know Mrs. Locket did a tutorial for hers.  There are a bunch other tutorials on here, too.  By both blogger Bees and us other bees. 🙂

If you google “fabric flower DIY” or “Fabric flower tutorial” you’ll get a lot of hits. 

Here’s one that has 10 tutorials:  http://www.skiptomylou.org/2011/03/22/10-beautiful-fabric-flower-tutorials/

 I made my flower girls’ bouquets to resemble “sweet shrub” blooms (because my grandmother had a sweet shrub and it’s still living, even though she passed away in 03).  I found a pattern for a flower online and instead of cutting them out seperately and sewing ’em together, I folded the fabric over like for the fabric roses and cut them into pointed ends, instead of rounded.  They turned out PERFECT.  (I was originally trying to make it into something else, but was really happy when it looked like a sweet shrub bloom!)

So sometimes, you take a basic pattern, and just alter it to fit what you want.  There are tons of patterns online, too.  I know Martha Stewart’s site has a bunch!

@MrsWeddingbliss: No problem!  If you need any more tips/suggestions, send me a PM!  I’m pretty sure I’ve got a bunch of sites bookmarked somewhere.  

Oh, and I’ll also add that I didn’t use the exact same fabrics that were always suggested, since I have a lot of scraps and used what I had.  With a little coaxing, I ended up making some really cute fabric rose bouts from fabric that looks like felt.  

IF you have the fabric available, experiment A LOT!  You’d be amazed at what you can do!
