Large Layered Fabric Flowers - Bouquet Batch

One of the first fabric flowers I made was a layered singed flower. I made a few of these in white, peach, and red and they came out beautifully that I made another set for the CHA collection. Then I concentrated on different designs.

Until such day that I needed to create another set of layered fabric flowers for two of my fabric bouquet projects last year. Since I'm new to fabric bouquets without really knowing the number of flowers that can be used, I produced more than what was needed - there were a few extra pieces left with me. Not knowing what to do with them, I asked my friend to try selling them. To my surprise, they were sold out even before I shipped it to her! Which makes me think of including this type of flowers on my next release.

So what's the difference from the first batch and my bouquet batch?

The first few batches only used 1 kind of fabric. The sizes offered were 1.5 and 2.5 inches in diameter. They were smaller but just right for my client's craft projects.

The bouquet batch, on the other hand, were bigger. They measure 3 to 3.5 inches in diameter and I used different kinds and shade of fabrics -- lace, organza, chiffon, etc. They also look fluffier because they have more layers than the first batch.

Now, I'm set to make a new batch of flowers for my next release, I'm definitely going to focus on large layered poppies in different colors. I'm planning on shades of blue, purple, and yellow.

Can't wait to get my hands on the fabrics for this project!
