I haven't been crafting much lately because of school. I picked out this necklace to wear with my outfit today, and I remembered that I made it a long time ago and never shared it with you. I wanted to do a real tutorial for how to make this flower, but I didn't have the right supplies or the time.
What you need:
Fabric (I used satin and chiffon, I think they work the best)
A bead or button
A needle & thread
1. Begin by cutting the fabric into circles of various sizes. Both of these fabrics are really annoying to cut, so don't worry about the circles being perfect because its not going to matter.
2. I would recommend doing the next part over a sink, that allows you to drop the fabric when you burn yourself (which I did quite a few times) and have water readily available if your fabric burning gets away from you.
3. Use the lighter to singe the edges of your fabric circles, the directions I used to do this didn't explain the best way to do this very well, so I tried a few different ways. I found the best was to keep the fabric close to the top of the flame, but try out different ways. Some of my circles caught on fire too much to be useful, some of them turned too brown on the edge, some ended up misshapen. But like I said, they don't have to be perfect, in fact, they look better if they aren't.
4. Arrange the circles and simply stitch them together, I choose the blue pearl bead for the center, and later realized that it matched this necklace that I had already made.
I hope this wasn't confusing, it probably would have been better with pictures. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions.
These flowers are so fun and can be used for virtually anything (necklaces, rings, headbands, embellishments on clothes).
By the way, I have no idea why some of my pictures are in sepia tone, I took these pictures late last night and must have been to tired to notice the lack of color
