Krissy Flower Review ~ Tutorials by Fancy Schmancy Boutique

The Fancy Schmancy Boutique is one of our sponsors.  Jeni sent me another one of her wonderful tutorials called “Krissy” to try out and write a review on.  This tutorial took a little more time than some of her other tutorials but I am sure the next one I made it would go a lot faster.  After making this flower there are some things I would do different next time.  One being my fabric choice I would probably choose a fabric that is similar on both sides and not noticeable different sides.  This one I choose had two different sides and I did not know until after it was all done that I was not consistent with this.  One reason was my lighting in my living room is horrible and second I was probably not wearing my reading glasses (getting older sucks lol). Third I would choose some thing more fancy for the center of this flower.  I did not have a lot of choices to choose from and I did not pick up the right center when planning this flower out.  I do have some really nice centers coming in through a group buy, I am excited to start using them.  I may change this center out when I get my new centers.  Last I would probably choose a fabric that was not so stiff.  Over all I love the way it turned out and love Jeni’s tutorials.  I am always amazed at my final product and say to myself, “I really made this.”  I can tell Jeni really enjoys writing tutorials and does a great job at it. 

These are some of the things I really liked about Jeni's tutorial:

  • It was very easy to read, the text was nice and large; I did not even need to put on my reading glasses!
  • The tutorial was very nicely put together so that basically anyone, even a first-timer could figure it out.
  • There are a lot of very helpful pictures. I love good pictures showing how to do something, it is much easier to follow than just plain text.
  • Directions included suggestions on how to create the flower either smaller or larger as well as how to cut your fabric without the edges fraying.
