Artist Ashley Gammill prepares for her workshop at West Elm

Another month, another Craft Lake City workshop at West Elm. This time we created fabric flowers with local artist Ashley Gammill of Bagsy Blue Co. When asked why this is her craft of choice, she said that the long winters were getting her down, but flowers make her happy -- "So now, I make them every day and share them with people." I love that thought. Something makes me happy, so that's what I do every day. Cheers to that.

Tiny pink glue guns...I mean, come on. #thecuteness
Tiny pink glue guns. I mean, come on. How can this not be an awesome night?!

Little bits of cute fabric...soon to be flowers!
Fabric was donated by Riley Blake Designs.

After you put one small circle fully flat as the center of the flower, you fold the remaining circles into little funnel shapes. Put the pokey end toward the bottom and fan out petal by petal, small in the center to large on the outside.

For my second flower I decided to mix fabric patterns together...and add a leaf. Oh la la, so fancy.
I mixed and matched the fabric we were given. Why not?
