Default Re: Another question sorry girls

i get my daisies and ranunculus and many others on here
i get hydrangeas from Michaels b/c i have yet to find a great online source for the quality of Michaels.

there is a singed flower tut somewhere, but they are actually very easy. here is the gist

1. use polyester fabrics
2. cut different sized circles
3. light a candle
4. light run the edges of the fabric over the top of the flame
5. after they have cooled, assemble the flowers in whatever layers you like
6. sew a few stitches to hold layers together
7 add your center (beads and brads work well)
8 add a small piece of felt backing to hide thread and to create a solid base for your clip
9 add clip

it is really just trial and error. you really can't do them incorrectly at all!
