We've been wanting to share this tutorial with all of you ever since Elizabeth Scott's gorgeous Red Rose Farm fabrics made their way into our studio. Have fun!
Step 1:: Choose your fabrics and tee. (We would suggest using scraps of fabric for your flower petals.) Fuse lightweight interfacing onto the wrong side of your scraps.
Step 2:: Draw a petal shape onto a piece of thin cardboard and cut it out carefully. Using a soft pencil, trace around your template onto the interfaced side of your petal fabric. You may have as many petals as you like! (We made a very simple 7-petal version.) Cut out your petals.
Step 5:: Make a yo-yo for your flower center. Start by cutting out a circle using another coordinating fabric. (Use the mouth of a large glass or a small bowl to trace out your circle.) Turn the raw edge of your circle under about 1/4". Using a long running stitch, stitch along the crease. Pull stitches up tightly and knot off. Stitch your yo-yo to the center of your flower.
Now, pop on a pretty button for your flower center, and make a matching skirt!
XOXO, the Long ladies
