Default Anyone heard of Whippy Cake?

If you haven't heard of Whippy Cake, www.whippycake.com, she sells fabric bows/flowers/hair accessories and her theme is food. It's very haute, chic, upscale feel and sells her items for quite a bit! They are cute but I can't believe people actually pay $26 for ONE clip! And $8 for an FOE headband! WOW! It's definitely in her way of presenting them!

I make fabric hair accessories as well, but can't figure out how she made the black/white fabric flower...

I know how to do rolled roses, but I'm not sure how she does her other items! Anyone know and care to share?

Very cute but a little to pricey for me.

Excellent price points! She is doing it right! I love to see sellers that refuse to create items for very little profit. She has a great site and her pics are professional and advertise her products well. Another great creator is the owner of BabyEliza. Her items are priced well and her work and photos are amazing!

I refuse to create items for very little profit.. but I also think I'd be in trouble if I had a clip of one flower for 30.00... I sell rosette headbands like hers that are 30 and up for 20 to 25 ... and depending on the fabric used I'm still make 15 dollars or more

I will take a shot at how she makes those flowers She has gorgeous stuff!!!

I think they are fairly easy. Take a strip of fabric (looks like she used a chiffon fabric to me), fold it in half, and run a basting stitch (a long running stitch), or on a machine with the stitch length set really long, down the side of the strip close to where the two edges meet. Gently pull on the stitch till the fabric gathers and ruffles. Then it looks like she sewed the strip into a circle making the flower. Add a center button and your done.

Let me see if I can find a tut in my huge list of bookmarks
