Default Re: working with shabby chiffon flowers

I trim most of the mesh away with my regular scissors. Then I use embroidery scissors to get in between the petals (slightly tedious pita). Then the best tip I got from the other thread was using a lighter to quickly melt any mesh edges that are left. It works perfectly! Just be sure to do it quickly and not singe the fabric of the flower.
