Tutorial: fabric flower

Today I want to show you how to make this little fabric flower.
Start with a fabric square about 10 x 10 cm, the size is to your liking.I have previously folded the square in four to mark the center.Begin with the wrong side of the fabric, this will be the "back" of the flower.


begin to fold the corners toward the center.To keep it in place, use small stitches.


The four corners folded:


View of the other side (the "front side":


fold one side to the center and continue using small stitches:


And repeat with the four sides



Now take one of the corners and fold slightly outward to form the petals.(God, is hard to explain this ^^u)


Repeat in the four "corners" until you have the flower.


Sew the corners in the back


That's it! you can embellish it with beads, buttons, etc.


I hope you like this mini-tutorial, inspired in origami flowers ^^. I hope that my english is clear enough .

Little flower?

I don't know how to call it but this time I made this fabric flower that I saw in a magazine.

No se como llamarle pero esta vez hice esta flor de tela que vi en una revista.


The magazine says that this flowers are for hair clips but I decided to make a diadem .

La revista decía que las flores son para hacer clips para el pelo pero decidí hacer una diadema.


I like it because looks discret, not like those huge flowers that are in vogue now.(you know, at my age with those flowers.....)

Me gusta por que se ve discreto, no como esas enormes flores que están de moda ahora. (ya saben, a mi edad con esas flores...)


Next post I will show you how to make them!

En el próximo post les diré como hacerlas!

Keeping the sewing tools

First, this post is inspired by Pauline's blog - fat connection- . And this is how I keep my sewing tools.

Primero, este post está inspirado en el blog de Pauline - Fat Connection. Y así es como tengo mis implementos de costura.


As you can see, I'm not the most organized person in the world =p. Here I keep my needles, pins, some basic color threads, fabric markers, a stick for stuffing, scissors and little pieces of laces.

Como pueden ver, no soy la persona más organizada en el mundo =p. Aquí tengo mis agujas, alfileres, algunos hilos de colores básicos, marcadores de tela, un palito para rellenar ,tijeras y pequeños pedazos de listón.


In plastic boxes I keep my normal threads (yeah,it's a mess) and embroidery threads

En cajas de plástico tengo mis hilos normales (si, un desastre) y mis hilos de bordar.


and more plastic boxes! with the uncommon things I need for other things like seashell buttons, snaps, those things for keychains (what's the name?), etc.

Y más cajas de plástico! con las cosas no comunes que necesito para otras cosas como botones de concha, broches de presión, esas cositas para llaveros, etc.


and finally my buttons! I keep them in glass jars by color, size and number of holes.

Y finalmente mis botones! los tengo en frascos de vidrio por color, tamaño y numero de hoyos.


that's it my friends! I would love to see how do you keep your sewing tools!

Eso es todo amigos! me encantaría ver como guardan sus cosas costuriles!

Hugs! ♥

Some of you wondered about the health of my mom. She is fine and not. According to the results of her analysis, there is something wrong with her liver but she thinks it's nothing and no longer wants to continue going to the doctor. I tried to convince her but she said angrily that I must not get into her bussiness. So I decided to set aside and let herself realize her mistake. How to help someone who doesn't want help? my dad says "you shouldn't mourn someone who dies by her own fault" ....
Finally she is fine, but sometimes gets sick and it seems that is about to realize that she should go back to the doctor.
Thank you SO MUCH for your concern!! I've been very happy with your mails and messages n_n.
Algunos de ustedes se preguntaban por la salud de mi mamá. Ella está bien y no. De acuerdo a los resultados de sus analisis, hay algo malo con su hígado pero ella piensa que no es nada y ya no quiere seguir yendo al doctor. Traté de convencerla pero me contestó enojada que no me meta en sus asuntos. Así que decidí hacerme a un lado y dejarla que se dé cuenta de su error. ¿Cómo ayudar a alguien que no quiere ayuda? mi papá dice que "no debes llorar a alguien que muere por su propia culpa"...
Finalmente ella está bien, pero algunas veces recae y parece que está a punto de darse cuenta que debe regresar al doctor
MUCHAS GRACIAS por su preocupación!! Fuí muy feliz con sus mails y mensajes n_n.

Well, enough of sad things, I want to show you what I've done.

I missed you so much folks!! My mom was sick (still she is), then I got sick and I couldn't make many things I like. But I'm better now and I made this plush cat following instructions from a japanese book ^^.

Los extrañé mucho!! Mi mamá estuvo enferma (aún lo está), luego yo me enfermé y no pude hacer muchas cosas que me gustan. Pero ya estoy mejor y aproveché para hacer este gato siguiendo instrucciones de un libro japones ^^.


Isn't cute??
Fin (por ahora)

Pay It Forward

Sometime ago, I read an initiative in Pauline's blog, Fat-connection, where she proposes to make a "chain of good will", yes, as in the story we all know, but instead of favors are handmade gifts. How cool is that?

She began with this on 2009, and now my turn has come! , so, here's the guidelines:

1.- I will make three handmade gifts for the first three people who comments on this post. (I will ship internationally, even if you're in timbuktu...juju)

2.-I have 365 days to do it.. but don't worry , I want to complete this mission as soon as possible!! (let's say...3-4 months, or maybe less, who knows =p)

3.-You must have a blog (it's the only way to make sure that you will do the same! O_O)

4.-of course, you must be willing to do the same for other three pleople! (remember your honor!)

that way we hope that this chain will grow up more and more! XD C'mon pleople, let's share the good will ^_^

PS:The handmade gift will be a surprise XD

PS2: I hope you don't mind I used your image,Pauline ^^u

See ya then!

Yo-yo Addiction

Yep, make those yoyos can be addictive O_o. Recently I found this tutorial, wich explains very clear how to make them.

Sip, hacer esos yoyos puede ser adictivo o_o. Recientemente encontré este tutorial que explica claramente cómo hacerlos.



Also, I bought these beautiful fabrics *_*.

también compré estas hermosas telas *_*


I realized that fabric stores bring imported fabrics more often, especially american cotton .They're a little expensive T_T but they sell out very quickly!!

Me di cuenta que las tiendas de tela traen telas importadas más seguido, especialmente algodón americano. Son un poco caras T_T pero se venden muy rápido!

Well... I must go to work! n_n

Bueno, debo trabajar

. ^--^
