Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Upcycled Flowers

Lots of spring flowers might be blooming in your area if you are fortunate to have springtime now so I thought I would see on Etsy how people make upcycled flowers. Here are a few I found. :)


Now how neat are these flowers from IndustrialBloom! They are made with vintage faucet handles! I showed these to my daughter and she made some. :)






Pretty soon the daisies will be showing up too just like this one from Imperfections. It is made from wood and a pan lid. 






Look at this colorful garland! It is made by ClaireWheatDesigns and she cut the flowers from a vintage garden flowers book. 






Well if you can't wait for the flowers to come up why not "plant" one of these flowers in your yard from ADelicateTouch1. It has lots of pretty colors and it is made from plates. Pretty neat. 






Just looking at all these flowers really makes me want to get on with spring, but up here we still have 2 feet of snow on the ground so spring seems a long ways away. So you guys that are getting to see flowers already have fun enjoying them :)

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Flower Placemats

If it is time to start sprucing up your home for spring where you are at I think flower placemats would help with that. There are so many beautiful fabrics out there with pretty spring flowers on the print that you have so many choices to pick from for your placemats. I found this video to show how you can make some reversible placemats for your table. I make LOTS of placemats throughout the year for all occasions and this tutorial seems to be very easy to do. So why not give it a shot and make some really pretty spring flower placemats for your table. :)


Happy sewing!
