Fabric Flower Bouquet


December 14, I ordered shabby posies and pom pom posies dies after viewing Tammy Tutterow's artwork on Internet. 
When they arrived I started making flowers with stem and leaves using crinoline and buckram fabric. I've made a lot of flowers since December 19. Love using these thin dies. I can cut two layers with one pass with my vagabond. 
The glass vases, wrapped wire stems, buckram were purchased at Hobby Lobby. 
Utility crinoline was purchased at Joann's. 
Paint from my stash.
Stamens were from my stash when I made wedding candles and from my daughters antique shop. 
The next flowers will be made with short stems to use on my cards and tags. 
The above flowers are examples; each bouquet I gave away had 5 to 7 flowers. 
One granddaughter wanted blue flowers, one granddaughter wanted purple flowers, my mother a mixed bouquet, our daughter a mixed bouquet and our DIL a mixed bouquet and one of my sisters a yellow bouquet.
