This is the website where I found tutorial, but mostly used it for approximate measurements of fabric and experimented with a variety of folding/twisting/glue-gunning methods. It worked out pretty well, I have a few ideas for where to use these little flowers: on a pin or a head band, for a little something extra on a wrapped present. I'm sure there are more.
My crafting stations:
|Coffee, music, glue gun and fabric|
|Iron and ironing board set up on the stove, |
not quite ideal but it works
After a few glue gunning incidents (my fingers getting stuck to EVERYTHING) I got the hang of the folding/twisting/gluing and managed to make some decent looking flowers:
|My first three (left to right) can you see the improvement?|
|Overexposed end product|
|Slightly underexposed...I'm working on it|
Since I didn't have the pins on hand to make something you can pin on a coat OR a headband I went with fake flowers. I just took skewers and stuck them into the bottom of the flower...tada!
