    I am going to try to make fabric flowers for a wedding/shower.
    I really don't want to spend a heck of a lot on the material, so anyone have any suggestions besides the local Salvation Army?

    Thanks.

    You could reuse fabric from discarded blouses and dresses. Maybe older summer clothes that are out of style.

    Our local curtain shop sells bundles of offcuts, mainly sheers and satin-type stuff...that may be a useful source. Or as Cherylynne suggested, old clothing.

    I don't think I have any old clothing that would be useful. Fall is the theme of the wedding, she is mostly thinking Thanksgiving colors. I have no dresses and all my tops are a cotton tshirt type material. Couldn't use it to make flowers.

    You might post a note in the Bu, Sell, Trade section here, and say what you are willing to pay or trade for. Lots of nice quilters here

    Do you have a WalMart near you? Quilt quality isn't essential for shower flowers, & their prices won't break the bank.
