I embellished retractable tape measure with hexagon flower and rhinestone Bee, cut off leaf shaped piece of green felt and attached it to the bottom to softer touch. When you press Bee's butt tape measure rewinds!
You can purchase some of them in my Quiltess.com store at Handmade section.
I am also happy to share with you my tutorial How to make Floral Tape Measure. Janet Wickell, quilting expert at About.com, generously offered me to publish it there.
Enjoy and make more your own flowers!
