Blog with Friends - May Flowers

It's that time again!! Time for Blog with Friends!!! This month we are bringing you flower related projects and posts.

For my project I put together this little flowered table runner. It's a super fast and easy project. 

What I Used 

1 1/2 yards of green dots
1 package of felt flowers
Pinking shears

Step 1

First, I folded the fabric in half, selvage to selvage. 
Then I trimmed it along both sides with the pinking shears. 
I also took a few inches off the ends. 

Step 2 

Then I sewed a straight stitch along all the edges. 

Next, I placed the flowers until I had them the way I wanted them.

Step 3

Then I sewed the felt flower buttons down just like I would a regular button.

ALL DONE!!! Told you it was easy! ;)

I also put together the flower centerpiece. I made a trip to The Dollar Tree and used only stuff that I found there. SUPER cheap, SUPER easy!!!! 
I bought several flowers (they had the butterflies with them), the metal tub, and a green foam rectangle. Then I separated the flowers and stuck them in individually. 

Check out ALL the posts for this month's Blog with Friends!!!! So much awesomeness!!!!!!
