I’ve been making fabric flowers ala Mrs. Locket’s tutorials, and I gotta say, I LOVE them so far! I’ve got two more types of flowers (at least… maybe three… plus some other add-ins) in mind, but the two kinds I’ve made so far make me so excited. I’ve been watching Say Yes To The Dress while I make them, and I feel like a huge dork because the women on the show get all teary over their dresses, but I sit there getting teary looking at my flowers and thinking about how much I’m looking forward to the day I get to carry them down the aisle 🙂
I’ve got step-by-step pics on my blog (link removed due to self promotion policy – sorry!), and here’s the links to Mrs. Locket’s step-by-steps:

Thank you! 😀
@FutureHarp: You can see the steps I did on my blog link, or you can click on the other links to see my original inspiration from Mrs. Locket.
@goosegg1001: I’ll be making 6 bridesmaids bouquets and my bridal bouquet. Right now I’m estimating I’ll need about 12-15 for each bm bouquet and 20-30 for mine, so somewhere between 100-130 flowers total. I’ll probably be using some button accents and maaaaybe some dried wheat, too… and I’ve got two shades of brown fabric that I haven’t even started with yet. I’ve got about 20 done so far… a couple weeks of working on them in the evenings in front of the tv, and I’ll be set 😀

These look great! So glad the tutorials made enough sense to you! I know they could use some editing and video would be wonderful too. FYI I did a trick in my bridesmaids bouquets to make them look fuller I add tulle around the base of each flower and only ended up using 10 flowers per Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquet. My bouquet had a whopping 50 total flowers, but the sizes all vary a bit. You can save yourself time and use less flowers if you create larger ones that will take up more space.

@locket: That’s good advice — I’d been wondering if my original number estimates would hold up, because the white peonies I’ve made ended up HUGE 😛 I’m thinking of using a lot of those and the ones I plan to make in a similar style in taupe for the bms, with a few smaller, colored ones for pop, using more of the colored ones for my own (since the ladies will be wearing colors and I won’t :P). I see the tulle now that I look at your pics again… that’s an awesome trick!
Your tutorials make perfect sense, and I am soooo so thankful that you took the time to make them and were so generous to share them on WB 😀 Thanks to you, I’m saving about $500 and will have something awesome and handmade for our wedding! Hooray!

I love the flowers!
But I also have to say I love your bedspread even more! So much that we have the same one on our bed 🙂
