I Adore sunflowers, they are big, bold ,bright feed both animals people

My favorite has always been calla lilies. They just seem so perfect and elegant..

I love morning glories!

my favorite flower is Carnations.

There is just something about yellow roses that I always gravitate towards, whether I'm in a grocery store and just walking by the floral department, or I see them growing in someone's garden. I recently received some that started sprouting leaves afterwards I'm now crossing my fingers and hoping that they will turn into full blown roses again!

Love Lilacs!

If vines and a plants that flower are not true flowers, I choose wildflowers because Shasta Daisies and California Poppies are in that group.

I think sweet woodruff is a plant so my favorite choise of flower is another sweet smelling flower--honeysuckle--it may be a vine that flowers.

I like the smell of sweet woodruff mini flowers.

I absolutely love Lillie. There's just something about the simplicity and shape

my favourite flower is the Marigold.

I love a lot of flowers. Sunflowers,gardenias,jasmine and magnolias are my favorite. I absolutely love these fabric flowers and they can be used on many different things. I want to make some in red,white and blue to go on a headband for my grand daughter for her fourth or July outfit. I am glad to see this video so I can make some and love that all you need to do is cut strips of fabric. Thanks for this project.

Hydrangeas and wisteria are my favorite!

I adore gardenias and hibiscus flowers. I just love tropical plants in general!

I love snapdragons!

I ADORE orchids!

So love the ruffle fabric flowers as well as this site, it is my happy place site!

Love all the flowers but I like the ribbon flowers best.

silk and ribbon flowers are my favorite . I sell them at craft shows. Love this tutorial!

I love bluebells and lilacs! Bluebells are pictured - I just love the way they cover the hills in the spring.

I love gardenias! The creamy color is highlighted by its heady aroma and it just intoxicates all around!

My favorite flowers are hydrangeas, peonies, and garden roses!

I absolutely love peonies with hydrangea coming in a close second. For me, the fuller the flower, the better!

Oooh, I've recently developed a love for plants. I have a few succulents, I'm growing basil, peppers, tomatoes, and rosemary in my apartment. I love orchids, sunflowers, daisies, and tulips!

I love poppies!!!! Orange poppies are my favorite, especially fields of them! Please see the attached photo for reference.

My apartment is full of succulents, so naturally I love them, but I would probably say my favorite flower is daisies!

I love these flowers. They are perfect for me to use as embellishments on bags! I am not the greatest sewer, but these are easy to do, and are great for me to use to spice up the few bags I am able to make. Thank you for posting this resource for me to use!

I love love these fabric flowers. All different kinds for so many different projects from hair bows to purses to clothing for flip flop decorations,scrapbooking,to spice up drapes,for bathrooms,kitchen to bedrooms. The list goes on. Thank you for letting us know that there is many different flowers to make so we do not have to do same one over and over. Flowers are awesome.

Thank you for all these great suggestions. I have made yo-yo flowers for wearable pins, hair barrettes and embellishment on pillows and little girls' dresses. These new ideas are just what I need to change up my flower creations! With all the fabric scraps Imhave, I can see using these designs with a button or little jewel center. So many neat designs, I can't wait to try some of these out!

Fabric flowers are so easy to make out of scrap fabric and are so charming as they can adorn a ladies jacket or coat lapel as a stylish accent appropriate for any season, a little girl's headband, any tote or fabric purse, or gathered together as a charming wall decoration. Arrange seasonal fabric flowers around a hand lettered sign announcing the coming winter, spring, summer or fall and use as a wall hanging. These flower instructions are so useful!

The vase of fabric flowers is so shabby chic! I love it! What a great use for scraps of those little bundles of quilting fabric I look at longingly! Now I have an excuse...I mean use...for them! lol

I found at least 6 flowers that can make cute hair clips anddecorations for the little girls in my life and some terrific ideas for clothing and home dec embellishment

That's a great idea! I have a granddaughter, 1.5 years, who would look cute with a fabric flower on a soft headband--she doesn't have much hair yet, so needs a flower! lol

i absolutely love fabric flower! Honestly, I think a simple little blue silk fabric flower pin was the first thing I ever made for my Chelsea Ezell. Love Her Always.

Love this tutorial!

Yes, they are perfect to sew all kind of projects. The flowers are lovely and a great embelishment.

Fabric flowers are better because you can put colors together that don't occur naturally in nature. Especially if you dye your own fabrics.

Fabric flowers are better, they last longer and you can coordinate colors with your home decor!

Fabric flowers are awesome, it's a great way to use up some of the smaller scraps and also match your decor.

Yes they are a good substitute because you can look at the pretty colors year round!

I love flowers and gardening in the summer. There is nothing like stopping to smell the roses I grew. I also love the whimsical and stylish look of fabric flowers. I can take them with me on my coat or my purse to enjoy where ever I go. They both have great appeal and I wouldn't want to substitute one for the other.

Both have their place, but for year round beauty, fabric flowers are great!

I think fabric flowers are great. They never die and they are always in bloom.;) spritz them with floral perfume and they smell great too.

Even better in most cases! They would LAST -- and you could make them any color or pattern you wanted. And, it's an inexpensive way to give them to yourself!! :)

Yes they definitely are for me. I am allergic to most flowers and chemicals and much prefer to see real flowers outside where they look normal. Plus you can do so many more things with fabric flowers.

Today? Absolutely! My allergies are killing me. Bring on the sewn flowers, PLEASE! :)

I love fabric flowers. I even made fabric roses for my wedding dress.

Love this idea of sewn flowers last forever and washable. Thank you for sharing

I love real flowers. The scent and feel cannot be duplicated.

Fabric flowers are great! They can be made out of any fabric, color or texture and last longer than real flowers. And they aren't too hard to make!

I love both. But nothing beats a real flower. The smell, feel...

Yes, I think sewn flower are better. First, they never die. Second, there are some many things you can do with them. It is fun making them. Then you can use them in your projects. Like, using them as fillers on cards, canvases, mixed media, jewelry, head bands. You can put them in vases. The possibilities are endless. But, there isn't nothing like a fresh bouquet of flower on your kitchen table. But, yes sewn flowers are better because you can do so much more with them and have them last forever.

They are not a substitute - but they are wonderful!!! I think real and fabric, flowers are fantastic!

Fabric flowers last longer than real ones so are a great substitue, plus you can get them in whatever color you want!

Sewn fabric flowers are an excellent choice for any craft or sewing project that you want to keep for a long time. Real flowers don't have a very long shelf life once they are cut.

I think sewn flowers are as good as real ones! They don't die, they hold their color, they can be used over and over in different projects!

Fabric flowers will never die and last forever. Even though I love real flowers I believe that fabric flowers is a keepsake. I can always look at my fabric flowers and remember where and who I received them from.

Yes and No. They work great on garments and books and quilts, etc. That said I want the real thing on my kitchen table sometimes.

I love fabric flowers. Done right they are very pretty and make great conversation pieces. Fabric flowers are perfect for those of us who have severe allergies and breathing problems.

Sewn flowers just don't have the "scent" that can take you away to a garden.

Yes they are and they last longer.

I love all flowers, real or fabric. And certainly fabric flowers are fabulous on quilts or sewn items. Love your free fabric flowers. Thank you for the give away.

Besides being a quilter/sewer, I am a gardener. Though I love fabric flowers on quilts, clothes, and bags, there is nothing like real flowers. Their smell alone sets them above anything I am able to create myself!

Fabric flowers are made with love. That makes them even better than real ones.

Sure if you are allergic to the real ones.

Sewn flowers are great for bags, totes, or garments. I would not use them in decorating projects though.

Yes great for little girls hats!

Yes they are a good substitute. Fabrics come in just as many if not more colors than real flowers. The only thing missing is the scent.

I don't think that sewn fabric flowers are a good substitute for real ones in every situation, but they are good for adding flowers to garments, decor and other items where real ones would not be practical or long lasting.

Absolutely love fabric flowers on quilts, purses and clothing just to name a few. Sew much better than real ones. They last virtually forever!

yes, sewn flowers are the best. And these look great

Sewn fabric flowers definitely outlast real ones and do not cause my allergies to flare up like real ones can, so yes, I think they are a good substitute for real ones.

HELLO, yes in many instances they areespecially at laundry time! Thanks for sharing a neat giveaway!

Very cute and last longer then real flowers. And no allergens coming from a person who has trouble being around real flowers

I love real flowers...but during the colder months, I would love to have a houseful of beautiful flowers to admire. I also love that they do not have to be watered! LOL

Fabric flowers are a great substitute...they can bring a splash of color in the midst of the long winter!!

Yes! Fabric flowers can be a splash of color at any time of the year....could've used them this winter in Michigan!!

It is hard to beat a dozen roses from your sweetheart, but fabric flowers are fun to make too!

I love making fabric flowers! I put them on everything... purses, tees, picture frames. I only know how to make 2 styles, would love to make more.

I love fabric flowers, they can be made to match ANY outfit, either by color or by design style.

sure they are just as beautiful and are great for peoples with allergies and they will last forever

Yes, sewn fabric flowers are better than real ones.

Love being able to make artificial flowers that will last a lot longer than what you would need them for. Easy to make and lots of ideas and ways to use them. Plus it not only dresses up any project, but make and be creative and put them in any room for that special decorating idea that people will be sure to always comment on.

they are cute, easy to make and fabric choices can match or coordinate with place mats, table runners etc. and they last a lot longer, too.

The many different ways to make flowers and the shapes out do the flowers in nature make them a wonderful substitute for flower decorating indoors.

I think that fabric flowers make a nice alternative to real flowers because they can be whimsical or lifelike, plus they last longer. :-) Tough to toss a real flower into the washer. ;-)

What a lovely addition to any project to dress it up! Thanks so much :) HennaLadyKim

I would love to look at your book on fabric flowers. I am disabled and am always looking for things I can do while either sitting or in bed. It has to be something with very little or no cost because I don't have the money to spend. I'm 72 years and have always sewed and been good with my hands, but I'm afraid arthritis my be trying to set in but I will us my hands as long as possible.
