Indygo Junction’s Fabric Flowers Book Tour and Giveaway

Lazies, Thank you for joining me on my day of Indygo Junction’s Fabric Flowers blog tour. My gorgeous flower is the Wool Daffodil and I adore it!. We are giving away a copy of Indygo Junction’s Fabric Flowers book & the Clover needle felting tools used to add the swirl embellishment to my flower. Details below.

Daffodil Flower
Here’s my flower in place on my jacket, ready to hit the town in style. I love the combination of textures, dimension and materials. It adds new character to my outdoor ensemble. I’ll just have to steer clear of my friend Karen S, whom I know would love this so much, she’d shamelessly wrestle it right off my shoulder. Karen – I’ll see you when the weather warms up.

Fabrics and Embellishments
Here are the materials I used to create this Daffodil. Three pieces of heavy cotton fabric and two colors of Clover’s wool roving. I couldn’t…ahem…locate my wool fabrics in my not-so-tidy studio, but I’m thrilled with the result using these heavy cottons I picked up on a trip to Japan.

Fabric Flowers Book
Indygo Junction’s Fabric Flowers book is packed with 25 beautiful and creative flowers to decorate your life. The directions were easy to follow and I plan to try more of the designs in this book. The daffodil from the Fabric Flowers book is shown here made in wool.


Clover Tools
I used Clover Needlecraft’s felting tools and wool roving. This is the first time I tried needle felting. It was easy and successful. I like the added dimension it brings to my flower. I used heavy cotton fabric for my base. To give it more structure like wool, I added our Sew Lazy Face-It Soft fusible lightweight interfacing on the back of the main fabric. The needle felting was successful through the cotton and interfacing.
