Welcome to my new site everyone!!! It was a big decision to decide to blend my cooking and decorating blogs together, but I knew it was time. I was having a hard time keeping up with both of them, and I felt like the content on both was suffering. Hopefully this will be much better!

A huge shout out to my amazing hubbie! I absolutely could not have done it without him. He spent every minute of his free time this weekend helping me get everything up and running. I will still be tweaking a few things here and there, but I figured it was good enough for now. Let me know if you find any broken links or anything else that isn't working.
I thought it would be a good idea to have my very first post be a tutorial. I know you love them. I noticed on my Google analytics that lots of people stumble across my blog looking for "denim flower tutorial". I figured if that many people are interested in it, I should probably come up with one. So here goes, my very first denim flower tutorial. I have a few others in the works, but this one is really easy, so I started with it first. Have fun!
Shabby Denim Flower Tutorial
Repeat with the remaining pattern pieces.
I think it looks best to do two of the largest size, then just one of each of the other sizes. You can experiment and see what you prefer.
Now you have a whole bunch of flowers in various sizes.
To get a more shabby look, you need to rough it up a bit. It helps to spray it lightly with water first. See those little droplets on the table? That's how much I sprayed. You don't need to soak it, just get it damp.
If you want it even more shabby, just pull on the edges with your fingers and the denim will fray.
That's it! Now you can add a hair clip or pin to the back and you're all set to go! Enjoy your new beautiful flower, I bet you'll get lots of compliments!
