Default Re: Please help me make this flower ASAP.....


i make one kinda like it, it's super easy. long piece of fabric (i use approx 1.5 inches wide but it could be whatever width would work for you). fray it along the top edge (cut a little snip then tear the fabric all the way across and then pull off as many threaded layers as you want for the look you are going for). then if you have used a really wide piece of fabric, fold it in half horizontally. then hand sew long loose stitches along the bottom edge (or fold) to gather it. pull thread to gather and roll the middle and arrange it as you like it then stitch through the bottom (all layers) several times criss-cross to secure it in flower shape.

hope that makes sense? my example i frayed slightly but could have done it a ton more
