Having Fun with Flower Looms
I haven't done much sewing in the past couple of months, but I have become a little bit obesessed with theses flower looms that were a popular craft in the 60's and 70's. I first saw them on a Martha Stewart show and did a little more searching on the internet to find out more about them. Cathy of California is the gal who showed how to make the flowers on Martha Stewart and her blog is full of great vintage goodness.
I've been able to purchase some of the vintage ribbon straw and some of the looms on ebay. This booklet is so fun, too. It's from a company called Studio Twelve and it has so many cute ideas in it for what to do with the flowers you make.
Hope you have a great weekend!
