Grungy Fabric Flowers for Creative Embellishments

I really like fabric flowers and want to include them in my projects.  The only problem is I can only find ones that are more on the shabby or elegant side.  I took it as a challenge to make a grungy version.  So I armed with Tim Holtz Eclectic Fabric, a glue gun, felt, and YouTube.  They were very addicting to make.  I started off making a bakers dozen of them.  I know that I will be making more and trying different styles.

For the centers I use medium and small chipoard gears, propellers, and loose parts using distress stains and patina gilder's paste to color.  I finished off with Prima metals.

supplies used:
Gear Set 2 Medium
Gear Set 2 Small
Loose parts
