Baseball Flower Tutorial

 Ok, this is my first tutorial of sorts, I am a visual person for the most part, but this just seemed to explain itself, so I hope there is enough detail. You start with a baseball/softball, these are all softballs. Use a seam ripper to cut all the stitching and you will have pieces shown in the above picture.
 Next, stack three pieces together to get a flower shape, you could use more, baseballs might require it to fill in space. Then using a leather needle tool I added a decorative button and on this one a broken earring.
The second one I used a vintage shoe clip, your imagination is the limit, use anything to make a pretty center, these would be cute on a wall, added to a bulletin board or picture frame

  1. Thanks for the tutorial, Crystal! Your softball flowers are terrific. I love the time-worn patina and your choice of embellishments.

    Sorry it has taken so long to visit. But the good news is, I just joined you as a follower and am featuring you tonight. Be sure to stop by to see.
