Some steps in making your own fabric flower: cut a few uneven rounds of scrap fabric....stack them....pinch the middle...use needle and thread to sew a few stitches through this pinch to make the fabric gather in the middle....then sew a few buttons on top....add a large safety pin the back, and voila! your own DIY flower pin! above is a pic of the full dress...jersey top (SUPER comfortable) with cotton skirt...the mismatched patterns on bottom allowed for my pretty fabric flower to go quite well!

create: flower pin dress update
So i picked up this pretty, casual summer dress at Target last night for $5...it was cute, but a little plain-jane for my taste... So I grabbed my sewing kit, and with fabric scraps and random buttons, I created a coordinating flower to spice things up a little bit!
