Things to love Thursday #1 - Fabric Flower Embellishments
I'm loving the fabric flower look that crafters are using to accessorize their projects. And who doesn't have old t-shirts or fabric scraps laying around that would make perfect flowers? You can glue these to almost anything to add a little instant pretty. I made these flowers by cutting up two old t-shirts into 2-3 inch strips, then twisting and rolling. I used pins to hold them together, and you'll want to glue it in a few spots after you're done to hold it in place, or spray it with fabric stiffener. The looser you twist, the easier it is to handle. Mine aren't perfect, but I like things like that!

And voila, we have a cute cottage box for my hand towels! Here's some other adorable ideas from around the blogosphere:
