Rolled Flowers and Winners

Fabric flowers are everywhere I look these days! So I've been searching for some different flower techniques to turn into necklaces and headbands. I'm thrilled with what I've found! The rolled flower is one of the coolest things I've seen recently, and I am in love with it's simple loveliness.

I'm also working on what I like to call The Giant's made just like the smaller pom-poms that I use for my necklaces, only it's about 4" wide! I think they're going to be AdoRaBLe for the little girl headbands I'm making.

The regular pom-poms each seem to turn out a little different from the next depending on the type of fabric I use and how big or small my starting circles are. I made these yellow checkered pom-poms to use up some leftover lightweight fabric, and I think they are some of my favorites!
If you'd like to know how to make pom-poms, check out this tutorial!

This weekend will hopefully involve turning most of these fabric flowers into uber cute necklaces, headbands, and who knows what else! I'll be posting the finished products on the Today Is Sweeter facebook page if you're interested in having one for yourself...

Thank you so much! I am very excited! The rolled flower....Are you going to make those into pins at all? I would love one if so. Let me know and let me know how much it would be. I would love a grey or black or white one I think? Or maybe even a pink one! I might need to ask you about every thing you make as far as Christmas gifts goes!!!! :) ~Erin
