No Sew Fabric Flowers

Want to be creative but don’t know how to sew? No problem. This Friday workshop on making fabric flowers without sewing, in the AmericasMart2 203D, was a prepaid workshop for Con participants. Using various fabrics and hot glue, participants were able to make flowers that could be used for cosplay, decoration, or any kind on embellishment.

One of the side benefits, after a long time when such things were discouraged, was sitting at a table with others, chatting and making new friends. You could choose strips of fabric is all based on what you like or use those scraps you have been collecting. It’s a great stash buster! Each flower will be different, so depending on your fabric choices, you could have a collection of flowers of all in the same fabric or use different prints to make a colorful collection.
