Scrunchy Flowers

Drum roll please.....

Today is my first tutorial. I am shyly blushing. I wonder if anyone is truly interested in how I make something, but I suppose I'll find out. I do have 10 followers now. Consider that a perfect 10 for Sew Poshy!! I have actually had a few people ask about these flowers so I will document the making of one. Here's a pic of the end result. Isn't she a sweet little flower? Simply flowericious!! If I had all the time in the world, I would edge each flower in sparkly glitter. Someday... So if you want the super posh way of making little scrunchy flowers, squeal and click here. Have a fabulous day!!

I Pad Flower Bag

Here's the latest... I have the sweetest little friend who inspired my new bag. Peek at Liberty Original and you will see her fabu idea for these mega flowers. I squealed in delight when I saw her flower onsie! With permission I'm a copycatter!! My Super Duper Valentine gave me an I Pad this year (I'm officially spoiled rotten). I needed some posh protection for it & soooo didn't like the traditional cases you can buy for them. And ta dah, this is my creation. It's padded, lined in yummy raspberry colored fabric, and topped off with a rhinestone button. I simply strut around the house with it. The kids think I'm crazy. Let's hope the neighbors don't see me.

Korker Ribbon

Here's today's true love: korker ribbon!! I have always admired it, even ordered it online & hoarded over my little stash. Hoard no more--korker ribbon for everyone at my house!! I took the tiny plunge and baked some up for myself. Clearly it is as super easy as everyone says. I read numerous tutorials and studied lots of pictures, then set off on my adventure. I already had clothespins to hold the ends. A quick trip to the store for 1/4 inch dowels & I was ready to go. Here's the result of two batches so far...
Want my recipe?!? Okay, here's the scoop. After I wrapped the ribbon on my dowels I completed soaked them in water. I snuggled them on a cookie sheet and in they went, baked in a 225 degree oven for 45 minutes. I like to think of it as a posh sauna treatment. They came out perfect! Yes, I'm giggling. I think I'll make sweet little korker hair clips for my chubby babe. Just like icing on top!! :) Happy day to everyone. Smile lots today. It feels so good.
