Hi Here is my Sep month in review, every month I see now my goals, hopes and dreams are going or not going that month, abit like a diary.
Anyway I did this for a sketch challenge on IB, and people wanted to know how I made these flowers, so here is the step by step photos, sorry I took the photos inside, but you get the idea. so have a bit of fun and have a go.
Also I have made 3 more flowers to give away so please leave a comment with your name and I will pick one Thursday night, and post the winner.
Close up of flowers
You need to cut approx a 4 inch square, out of your fabric.
Turn fabric the wrong way and bring all the corners together into the centre, use a stapler to staple all the corners together.
looks like a little bag
Turn it over and using your fingers pinch the middle of the bag and twist, pushing it down at the same time.
Using a paper piercer or an awl make a hole in the centre of the flower.
Place a brad in the hole to keep the flower together.
Use an iron on a high setting and give it a good press.
And you have one handmade flower! If you don't like the corners tuck them under the flower when you stick them down,
Have fun Gilly oxo.
