Vintage Quilt Scraps provide whimsical fun for your spring décor!
1. vintage quilt scraps
2. assortment of cute vintage buttons
3. pinking shears
4. needle and thread, and embroidery floss
5. thick floral wire
For each flower, use pinking shears to cut out three circles from small to large and to cut out a pair of leaves. Sew the three circles together with smallest on top. Then sew a button on top of the stack. Twirl the floral wire around your finger or a screwdriver handle to make a curlicue. Straighten the twisted stem a little bit. Make a small loop on one end of the wire “stem”.
With the embroidery floss, sew the flower to the loop. Then use the floss to the stitch the leaves to the stem by folding over one end of each leaf around the stem. Use a running stitch to attach the leaf to the stem.

Elizabeth Holcombe Fedorko, aka Bethsbagz, began her checkered crafting career when at four she realized using paste on paper was better than eating it. Inspired by vintage dime store treasures, vintage fabric, and a no-fear attitude toward color, Beth crafts totes, pin cushions, wreaths, and corsages into her Dime Store Chic creations. Beth would love you to take a peek into her whimsical world at her blog.
