Book Review: Fabric Blooms by Megan Hunt


Lark Crafts offered me Megan Hunt’s new book to review last month and I must admit at first I thought I would be too busy so I almost said no, but I’m so glad I didn’t!


Because Fabric Blooms gave me a solution to Cadie’s perpetually messy hair! A big flower clip, of course.

I can’t bear to cut my baby girl’s long curly locks, but she has such a sensitive head that brushing happens only once a day and she can’t stand ponytails. But I discovered that a fabric flower that is even bolder than the messy hair makes said hair look tame.

I can’t wait to make more big fabric blooms (although she has some lovely small ones too). For that reason the table of contents is my favorite part of this book. When has that ever happened before? But the table of contents has pictures of every single project. How awesome is that?

Look, there’s even more!

But I think I’ll make some of these next. They would look so fabulous on Cadie’s head!

disclosure: Lark Crafts provided this book to me in exchange for a blog review. I have read and tried a pattern from this book and have stated my honest opinion. Thanks!

  29. Ok Caroline, I know how hard it is to make thant1st choice of cutting hair, but sometimes it is necessary..I am going to tell you a little story….My oldest daughter called one morning, frantic, her baby girl had given herself a haircut. But not just any haircut, a half side buzz cut like her brothers had gotten for the summer to look more like dad…..She found the clippers, and had one side done before she was….found….So I finished the "Buzz" took her to get her ears pierced and she was a happy 5 yr. old. No more…ouchies, tangles, or "stay still, then it will not hurt" So this grandma says, save the unhappy times when she is 15 and wants to "date" the senior she met at the mall…………take her to a cute "kids" salon, where they will make her happy and you sad, just for a little while…. but love the big flower idea..really cute….

  30. HI Caroline,
    This book looks beautiful, like a cookbook, I love "how to" books with great pictures. I would use this book to create bonding time with my 10 and 8 year old girls. I could just see us picking some of these projects and be able to make fun memories with wonderful flowers to show for it! I also could see us picking a few for headbands or pony’s and make them for my girls sports teams out of our school team colors. Oh, the possibilities! Thanks for taking the time to review.

  31. Cindy Dahlgren says:

    My Granddaughter has curly, messy hair like yours. I would make several of these for her. I would also make some to decorate my home, and to use in my altered art projects. Come to think of it, I could use some for my hair too, it’s very messy right now, as I’m kind of growing it out.

  33. Kelly McKie says:

    These flowers are the BEST! I make cute fabric monsters and dolls for children (and adults) who need a bit of happiness in their life. "Through sickness and health" I say on each one of them, and a flower from this book would be the absolute bright spot on each one of them. A fun, unexpected bit of cheer and happy: a true Flower Power! I’m so excited!

  34. I simply love the idea of fabric flowers! I would love to make a giant bouquet for my daughter to celebrate her high school graduation this May. Thanks for posting the giveaway!

  35. Sheryl Woolfork says:

    I would use the fabric flower In a quilt showing that spring is here . The flowers would be in a garden on quilt design.growing up out of the ground. Or in a vase on table in quilt. The flowers would give 3d effect to the quilt . the sun would be shining. Spring is here.

    My grand daughter wears many different head bands with fabric puffs, flowers, bows etc. She just turned one year old. I think she might like some things in the book!

  39. Becky Parzek says:

    I would make a bouquet of flowers for my sister. She was a floral designer for 38 years and has been retired now for about 5 years. She is also going through Chemo. I think hand made flowers would be very special for her. 🙂
