I found these Flower Centers at Hobby Lobby a few weeks and love them in the centers of my bows. Here are a few bows I made this weekend with them.
Here is what the packages look like they have 10 flowers per pack and are $2.99 unless they are on sale or you have a 40% off coupon. They have solid colors and multi color packs. They are solid on the bottom so you can glue them right to your fabric. These are found in the scrapbook section by the brads.

First of all I have never actually gone out and purchased a bow tutorial, so one of the things I have to consider is whether or not I would want to purchase this tutorial after having used and reviewed 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.
I ended up making two different bows with the No Sew Pouting Princess Fabric Flower Tutorial one is more of a dressy look with satin and lace the other was made with 4 different color/patterns of fabric.
Here are some pictures of the two flowers I made by following the directions in the tutorial:
So my final thoughts..... I highly recommend The Fancy Schmancy Boutique's No SEW Pouting Princess Fabric Flower tutorial . It is clear, concise, and easy to follow, all the features are excellent and the end result is fantastic! So would I buy it? Most definitely! I consider it worth every penny of the $6.95 asking price, and right now you can even get it through the end of June for 15% off!
