Default Re: how to make this flower - round fabric flower

Pinking shears make the zigzag but the worn look is probably from just using regular scissors and fraying. Pinking shears will stop the frayed look.

I'm going to have to try it with the machine tonight. I've been wanting to make one of these for some time and started with handstitching but just got bored.

Running stitch is basically (I'm going to try my best to make sense) put your needle in and pull through, come back up 1/4" farther down in the fabric pull through, go back down through the fabric 1/4" farther. Keep going until you've done length of fabric. (Measurements don't matter...just used that as an example.
