Raggy Flowers

Recently, I discovered prodded rag rugs made by Heather at The Patchwork Heart. You have to check out her Cath Kidston inspired rug.

While researching prodded rugs, I found a tutorial for Raggy Flowers

I had to make them. The first one I made was denim. I didn't like how it turned out so I washed it several times, thinking that fraying would improve it. Not so much, huh? So I made a second denim one. Nope I don't like denim ones.

Next, I made one from the same flannel that I made the winter outfits for the girls I like this one much better.

But my favorite is definitely the one made from pink knit.

Isn't it pretty? It is the same fabric as K's leggings. I think I will put it on a headband for her.

I'll be sharing these at:



  1. Those are all pretty cool. I like the second denim (I like the fray and curl of it) one and the pink one the most, I think. Perfect for a headband.

  2. Melissa they are great, lovely to see the t-shirt one. I am going to try using finer strips and hoping for a flat corsage will put buttons in the middle ... keep watching my blog, thanks so much for the link :)

  7. I like the knit one too, but I don't think the denim look too bad. Thanks for your nice comments!

  8. The denim are cute, but love them all. Thanks for spotting such a great tute!

  9. OMGosh, these flowers are gorgeous! Love how they turned out.

  10. Oh, yes, the knit is working so well! The edges curl up perfectly. Thank you so much for linking :).

  11. I think they are all rather cute and I haven't tried that style of fabric flower yet.
