Making Fabric Flowers and a Giveaway!

***This Giveaway is Now Closed. The winner is Comment #53 – Beth! Thanks for entering!***

I have such a treat for you today!


I really love a get craft book – especially one that is a resource that I can turn to again and again. Today I’m sharing one of those fabulous resources – and giving YOU the chance to win one too!

Have you come across Junction’s Fabric Flowers, by Amy Barickman yet? It is such a great book!

If you’re a regular Flamingo Toes Reader, you know that I love making things with Fabric Flowers. We even have a whole page dedicated to them!

So when Indygo Junction sent me an email asking if I’d like to be a part of the Blog Tour promoting their newest book, Fabric Flowers, I jumped at the chance!
You’ll see a list of those of us participating at the bottom of the post, but basically, they asked each of us to choose a flower to make and show off.

I chose the Velvet Viola – it seemed so fun and soft, and perfect for me with its little beaded center!

Here’s my version of it:

Velvet and Ribbon Flower

I went with a more neutral version than the one in the book – and I love it because I think I can use this with so many outfits!

Fabric and Bead Flower

The center is a little cluster of beads – I think it is so pretty – especially against the soft ribbon and velvet. (or crushed velvet in this case.)

Velvet Viola Flower

Beaded Center of Flower

Here’s the version of the Velvet Viola they show in the book. I think that maroon and green are a lovely combo too!


Guess What?? The generous folks at Indygo Junction are letting me give a copy of the book to one of you! Yay!

I think you are going to love this – there are so many different and unique flowers here – all with super clear instructions for how to make them.

They are also offering a 20% discount to Flamingo Toes readers on your next Indygo Junction purchase!!
You will definitely want to head over and take a look around. They have such super cute patterns, great books and more!

So let’s get to the giveaway!

Indygo Junction is giving away a copy of their new book Fabric Flowers. The winner will also receive a set of yo-yo makers – which you can use to make some of the flowers in the book!
How cool is that?

    Just found your blog :) I have never made a fabric flower in my life, and I am so so excited, I can hardly stand it!! I saw your your cute sweetheart wreath, and wanted to make it…so I guess my response to your question would be to put them on wreaths!
