What you need:
- Embroidered or otherwise textured fabric (thin/sheer works well)
- Metallic button
- Hot glue gun
What to do:
Take a large square of your embroidered fabric and fold it in half, then half again (familiar with my dodgy technique yet? ;)) This time we want to cut a slightly different shape though, this diagram helps explain:
In the diagram above, you want to cut away the green bits and keep the purple bits
You should end up with this:
And when you open it up, it will look like this:
Make two of those. Pop some glue in the centre of one, and glue the other on to it, but offset the pieces so that the petals of one overlap the gaps between the petals on the other, like in this diagram:
Next, cut three circles of tulle.
(Recognise this photo from earlier? ;))
Pop a largish dab of glue in the centre of your embroidered flower. Pinch the centre of a tulle circle so you end up with a rough cone shape, and push the point of the cone into the glue. Hold it until it stays, then repeat with the other two tulle circles.
It should look like this:
Pop a bit more glue into the centre of the flower and press your metallic button into the glue until it holds.
Finito! A delicate flower. I think I'll put this one on a headband, it's one of my favourites!
I hope you enjoyed no-sew fabric flower week!
