Now that I have officially over 1600 things pinned on Pinterest I thought I should take a break and actually make something.  Ha!

I have a pin board called flowers where I have pinned many different flower tutorials with great plans to make some of them.  This particular one caught my eye and I just knew I had to make one or two.  I made a quick trip to JoAnn's for some fabric to add to some that  already had.

The first flower I made (the one on the hat above in the center) was made from some fabric I already had on hand
I thought the black, gray and yellow fabric that I found at JoAnn's would make pretty flowers.

You could put them on a hat or a purse.  Purse is shown below.

This is the inspiration flower I pinned came from Cluck, Cluck, Sew.  Go to her blog (click on the red chicken below) for a really great tutorial on exactly how this is made.

So what have you been making lately from Pinterest?  I would love to see what everyone else is doing.

I am linking up with the Strut Your Stuff Linky Party.  Click on icon to go browse what others have submitted.

SO STINKIN' ADORABLE!! While you were having fun I was out moving cinder blocks and mole repellent to make another garden. Something definitely wrong with this picture :)

The first thing I ever pinned was a little mouse inside a bed made from an altoids tin. I made it the other day for a granddaughter. It took me half a day and two false starts and was great fun.

So far, I've made a few recipes, held the "Favorite Things Party" and gotten some good storage ideas from Pinterest.
I so enjoy that site! And I really enjoy seeing the fun things you are inspired to make too! Oh and YES! I want the SUNSHINE board!

That is awesome! I love fabric flowers. I hadn't thought about putting them on a purse. Duh!

So cute.
I don't know what you are talking about. You make tons of stuff from Pinterest.

Really cute! I had to ban myself from Pinterest for a time. It was becoming all consuming!
