Valentines Day Cloth Flower Pin

I am real excited to share this Valentine’s Day cloth flower pin tutorial with you today. I have seen so many beautiful pins recently and I wanted to make an easy Valentine’s Day fabric pin using recycled fabric and tulle.Valentine's Day DIY Crafts with Bowdabra

Posts that I read on two of our Bowdabra Designers blogs inspired this tutorial.

Katie of SewWoodsy recently shared with her readers a tutorial for making recycled fabric flowers to embellish a shirt. I wanted to make something similar, however, I attached a pin to the back so that it could be removed before washing.
