Default Re: fabric and organza "singed" flowers?

I just cut extremely free form 4 petal "flower" shapes. From what I can tell there is no wrong way to do it since when you singe it kind of distorts the shape a bit anyway.

I just started making these last night.

Those are so cute, rufflesandribbon! I love the fabrics you used.

Here's a picture of one of my creations:

Initially I loved how this turned out, but now I feel like it's just too perfectly...symmetrical. What do you all think? I'd love some feedback.

I really like it. Yes kind of symmetrical but it's just a different look than what I did. I like the different layers & it looks like tulle in there too. Very pretty! Oh and thanks!!

I just love these and have been thinking about trying them. What colors do you think would sell the best?

Yup! You can definitely use tulle. Just keep in mind that it singes REALLY fast and can catch fire if you don't constantly keep rotating it around the flame. I'd suggest keeping a jar or bowl of water nearby the first few times you try it.

I was at Joanns and they had a little display up front (March is National Craft Month) with a bunch of little papers with free tutorials. They had one for a "brooch bouquet necklace" and it has quick instructions for organza flowers, ribbon flowers, and tulle flowers. It even has 2 petal outlines that you can use to cut out your shapes.

Funny thing, I just noticed on the back of it, it says they're not supposed to have this paper out until 3/7/10. ha I wonder how many other stores have it up already.

I think their version of tulle flowers is different. Here's what it says:
"1. Cut a 2 1/2" x 24" piece of tulle for the large flower & a 1 1/2" x 24" piece of tulle for the small flower.
2. For each flower, fold the piece of tulle in half lengthwise. By hand, stitch a row of running stitches 1/4" from the raw edges on the long side. Gently gather the tulle.
3. Fold the short edges to the back and stitch in place. Adjust gathers. Embellish with beads."
