Tablecloth Skirt and flower

So I was walking through the thrift store and spotted this wonderful white light brown/tan floral print.  I knew I had to wear this material. The only problem was this beautiful pattern was on a table cloth. I sat there perplexed about my conundrum for a minute but recovered when I told myself 'so what?'  Cotton material is cotton material.  I snatched it right up for 2 bucks along with a couple other little treasures.  It was one of the easiest pieces that I have yet made. Three cuts and three hems including the liner I added, really!!! This is what I made with that table cloth:




I made this little rose with the center circle that was cut out of the table cloth and liner to make the waistline.  So easy to make. First step is to cute out a bunch of petals in your two different materials. Pair up the two different materials so each pair has one of each material. Then, line up your petals from smallest to largest.
 Hot glue the pairs together with one small drop per couple.
Build your flower from the inside out starting with the smaller petals and working your way in a circle till  you get to larger petals hot gluing only the tips together.  When you are done just open the flower. 

I hope you like this one as much as I do.  Let me know what you think:)
