eally inspired by flowers popping up everywhere have made a load of stiffened fabric flowers. Have used some lovely fabrics found at our very well stocked local quilting shop and tried to keep the colours tonally the same. Cannot wait to make some more now...just need to get the stiffness right in the stems....a bit floppy at the moment! A huge vase with loads of them would look great!

anting to enter yet another spoonflower competition, this time for the prize money of $500.00. Needless to say there are 270 entries for this fabulous prize- spoonflower regulars will never again be satisfied with a mere 5 yards of free fabric!
I have done this design on illustrator, to match the colours of the company who is sponsoring the competition.
Please vote for me- the teenagers have sapped the last of the funds!
