My favorite by far are these vintage looking ones I made. The fabric was 50% off and for a yard (which costed $.85) I made 6 flowers. How's that for a budget buster! I really should go get more of this fabric, there were many different styles and colors. I think they would look awesome tea died, for that really vintage look.
Then I made these layered flowers. Just kept cutting different fabrics, felt and tulle and hot glued each layer together adding a button in the middle for detail. I wanted them to look a little tattered around the edges.
Then I made these yo-yo flowers. I wasn't really trying to make them, they just sorta happened. I just started sewing the fabric and ta-da a yo-yo was made. I think these would be really pretty with some Christmas fabric and a pearl in the middle (not a real pearl silly, this is embellishments for the budget buster). Or some really pretty velvet fabric with a pearl center.
