I found her thru my comments. I am so glad I did. She has a lot of great decorating and craft ideals.
I have jeweler that was my grand mothers. Unfortunately some of the earrings only have one piece to the set. I could never bring my self to get rid of them. Now I have a way to use them that will honor my grandmother. I will be using these fabric flowers to make pins and head bands for my girls and grand kids. I owe Pam a big thank you for letting me share her post.
There is so much more to see on her blog. This is just a teaser of what's in store for you .
Cut 6 circles of fabric, using a satiny fabric such as lingerie materials or others with a sheen or silkiness. Your circles should be slightly smaller each time you cut a new one. You do not need to use a template, they always seem to turn out!
Using your scissors, cut into each circle about 6 times as shown in this photo. They will be the petals.
Using one hand, hold the petal over the flame and turn to get it curled. Don't get to close to the flame or you will burn the petal.
When finished curling the petals you will stack each petal from biggest to smallest. The smallest will be on top and the biggest on bottom.
I take the threaded needle and go up straight through to the top first, so your knot is on the bottom.
After a few stitches, cut the thread and your now ready to decorate the center of your lovely flower!
