Stitched Blog Hop

Sew - A needle pulling thread; unless of course you're a crafter. That's when sewing becomes more than a needle pulling thread. It becomes whatever your mind can conceive and to show this, I have a great bunch of ladies with projects that show their INDIVIDUAL take on what "Anything Stitched" means.

Here is the full lineup for today in case you get lost!

I hope you will hop along with us today to see what these carfters have stitched up to show off. Your hostess, Jearise in Lorby's World is the beginning so please start there. She has a wonderful little gift for one lucky winner and all you have to do is hop through and leave a note on her blog and become a follower if you're not one already. You should have hopped along the stitching trail from Lucy's blog. If not, make sure to head on back so you don't miss a single amazing project!

I recently did a fabric swap and I was partnered with Anita, who you will visit later in this hop. She sent me some beautiful fabric including some orange (my favorite color). It called out to be turned into flowers, so here is what I came up with:

To see the tutorial for these flowers go here.
The flowers that Heather Bailey makes have more layers, but I'm lazy. I also wanted to see as much orange as possible! I also used her tutorial to remember how to make yoyos! She does a great job. The buttons on the flowers in the back are from my good friend Pamela who also has a great blog! Then, I had to decide the best way to show off these flowers. Accessories! So, I made a bracelet and a headband!

Thank you SEW much for hopping by today and please continue on to Lissa Marie's fantabulous blog.
