Formally known as 'Let's Get Shabby' since 2009.
Times have changed and many of us have found our styles have too.

It's time for another shabby tutorial and this month Yumiko is sharing with us how she created her gorgeous Denim and Lace corsage embellishment on her layout.

What you will need:
denim  ( some strips, two different sizes of circles  )
white thread

First sew a strip of denim and lace together.

Sew the denim with white thread and make gathering by hand.

Form into a circle.

Next I'm going to show you how to make the flower. It's very easy to make. 

Cut a cirlce of denim and then cut the circle into a spiral.

Sew some lace onto the edge.

Spiral into a flower and stick onto a small circle of denim..

Embellish the flower center with some beads.

Gather some lace, ribbon,some denim strips and any other embellishment you like to make a tassel for your corsage.

Add these to the flower and then onto the denim and lace circle.

This is a part of my creation of Challenge#21.
I hope you like this idea!!
Thank you so much!!

I love the tutorial! I would never have guessed to create a flower like that out of denim. awesome thanks for sharing. It is very different from most homemade flowers. I just didnt think to ever try denim!!! very creative and I love the sense of symmetry you layout offers, keeps your eyes moving all around. Great job!
