My Photo
Hello! my name is Tamar, I am a jewelry and accessory designer behind Nest Pretty Things, we are a husband and wife team and sell online through our website and Etsy shops and wholesale to over 50 shops around the world, my husband Ronen manages the business side and I am the designer and maker. We have a lovely studio in Burlington Vermont and live near by in Shelburne, a beautiful little village right by Lake Champlain, we now have three sons in college (24,22,20) and the sweetest cat Isabel. I love to decorate (you will always find me working on some project or other), cook and garden (I wish our VT season wasn't so short) and travel.

Pretty flowers! Seems your garden was so healthy. Wish I can have a healthy garden too. I'm been looking for interesting topic as this. Looking forward for your next post. Keep posting!

I like to use light weight fabric because it can be "frumped up" and it's easy to work with, but you can use heavier weight fabrics for a stiffer look

I love this idea - love to sew etc and will definitely try these with my 9 yo granddaughter - she will think they are the coolest!


Love it!! I'm so going to try this!


Very cute flower!


The fabric flowers are lovely, and your tutorial is so clear, it will encourage lots of us to start our gardens.

(I also wonder about the edge-fraying, whether you spray something on the reverse of the fabric, or whether the fraying is part of the intentional "frumping?")

Best wishes.


thank you for this tutorial... loooove


Oh that's so lovely. And I know a little girl who is going to agree with me!


Hello, I love these flowers, they look really beautiful. One quick question, how do you stop the edges of the fabric from fraying?


I love how you fold it up to cut the petals, nice and easy! I'll be decorating.


WOW! I love this project so much. You've done a fantastic job with it! :)


Fun! Thanks for the tutorial! I love your style. :)
