I just love those fabrics flowers. So delicate with a touch of vintage!
To make this project you will need:
- Fabric (I decided to go with cream colored linen)
- A needle and some nylon string
- A pair of scissors
- A pinback
- Some feathers (if you like them :))
1- Download the template on Carotte & Lychee Flickr here for the small and large petal.
2- Cut 9 large petals and 11 small ones.
3- Take one petal and put a little piece of string as shown on the picture.
4- Pull the string to squeeze the fabric. Hold the tip and solidify it by making an other point with your needle and string.
5- You petal should now look like something like this!
6- Repeat steps 3-4-5 on all large the petals.
7- Take four of them and sew them together.
8- It should now look like this.
9- Now, sew 3 petals together.
10- Sew together the group of four and the group of three petals.
11- Finally sew the two remaining large petals together.
12- Sew them on top of the other large petals.
13- Repeat steps 3-4-5 on all small petals.
14- Sew them together adding each petal below the other so the middle of the flower will be nice and clean.
15- You now have two parts of the flower.
16- Sew them together.
18- You can now sew some feathers on the back if you like.
19- Sew a pin on the back
20- Your flower is now ready to be worn :)
