Folded Fabric Flowers on Gift Bags
by Carol Renfrew & Charlene Ditton, Homer

Supplies needed:
-gift bag
-for flowers
   10-3"x3" fabric squares
    needle and matching thread
    contrasting button for center
    green fabric scraps for leaves
    fusible for stiffening leaf fabric
-2 different 4"x6" rectangles fabrics for behind flowers on bag
-coordinating 1/4" or 1/8" ribbons
-hot glue gun

Carol suggests watching the You Tube tutorial for folded fabric flowers, The Thread Fabric Store's, Japanese Kanzashi Fabric Flower.  The only difference is when the directions tell you to put a pin in to hold the small triangles on the back, we will be using a dab of hot glue instead at the November meeting. Carol & Charlene will have more details for this project at the October 7th General Membership Meeting.
