Flower Study Part 1: Pocket Full of Posies

Yesterday I was talking to my friend Amie about how I didn't really feel like I was awesome at anything in crafting. I am kind of like a jack of all trades, master of none.

Every month I get together with Amie and Caroline to do a craft. It's usually sewing, but someimes we branch out. Mostly I just try to imitate their awesome skills. Amie is awesome at jewelry and Caroline is amazing at sewing. I can usually crank out something pretty cool while crafting with them.

I was discussing this with Amie and John and they both replied that I am really good at wreaths. Now I don't know if I would go as far as to say I am an awesome wreath maker or anything, but in comparison to some of my other crafty skills, wreath making does come a little easier and there are much fewer giant craft fails when I make a wreath.

I have now decided I am on a mission to start creating epic wreaths. Maybe I will even do a wreath giveaway? So on my mission for the ultimate wreath I have realized I need to increase my fabric flower making skills. I am a master of the trusty old rosette, but there are many variations of it I haven't tried, not to mention all of the other flowers out there.

So over the next few days I am going to be linking up to the best flower tutorials the internet can bring you. Please send me yours if you would like to be featured as well.

Here is a posey (I think) tutorial from Amie.
