Create 'Fabric Blooms' with book by Megan Hunt

Looking for a way to liven up last year’s spring and summer wardrobe, or want to add more color to your home decor? If so, “Fabric Blooms, 42 Flowers to Make, Wear & Adorn Your Life” (Lark/$17.95) can help you do just that while having lots of fun adding your own sense of creativity.

Author Megan Hunt, a bridal designer and freelance writer, gives step-by-step instructions for creating a range of flowers using different fabrics and embellishing them with things like beads, buttons, tape, yarn and thread to achieve unique fabric flowers that you’ll definitely want to show off in your hair, on lapels, in a vase as a centerpiece, on a purse, or maybe even on your latest quilt project.
