Shirred Fabric Flowers {made from knit fabric scraps} by Make It and Love It

BonBon Break

I have piles of fabric. Some of it’s purchased with a specific project in mind, some is purchased because the fabric hollered at me to buy it, and the rest is old clothing that I have cut up to use for something else. And sometimes I only needed one little chunk of that old piece of clothing… the rest of it goes into a pile. Most of that clothing pile is knit fabric……so it’s hard for me to throw scrap pieces away because good knit is sometimes hard to find. So I can’t get rid of any of it.

While watching my kids, I realized I needed to use up some of that knit. And what better way than to add more summer to my girls’ heads. Yeah, they have a zillion hair clips and headbands……..but what harm is there in making just a few more?

ABOUT ASHLEY: Hi, I’m Ashley…..…..welcome to my little corner. I am a mom to 3 wiggly kiddos and a wife to a very patient (with my craft clutter) husband. In case you’re wondering, I always choose crafting/sewing/designing over mopping/dusting/wiping base boards……but bathrooms/laundry/full bellies are always attended to. Whew! My little family is my main inspiration for what I create…..whether they want to be or not! And all someone has to do is dare me, and I’m down and dirty trying to figure out how to make something that I’ve seen in the store, or, well, is on someone that is walking down the street. Watch out passersby!Sometimes these projects saves us a little money…..and other times, it is purely, well, just for fun. Because, hands down, nothing beats the thrill of creating something with your own two hands, and then being shocked that it actually worked out. Haha……..I can’t tell you how many times that has happened to me. So join in, make a little something, surprise yourself with the outcome………..and then love it! You’ll be so happy you did.
