Default Singed Flowers

Okay so I want to make some of these singed flowers very soon... Any tips on what materials you can and cannot use. I saw a post on another board that said NO COTTON, lol, she said she used satin and it worked well. Obviously, I think organza works well. What about like brocade or soemthing?
Has anyone made any from the free tut one of the ladies on here offered--thanks again, great tut, sorry I forgot who it was (--and can you post pics of what you did!?!

I made a few yesterday and I used the free tutorial offered here (ThreeBlessingsBoutique). GREAT instructions, very easy to follow. I found the key to a full flower (I like them full) was to cut various sized pieces. If they were all the same, they didn't stack as nicely (in my opinion). I only used organza and I bought a variety of cute buttons from my local fabric store for the centers.

I really like the little ones. I think they'll look great attached to a mini alligator clip and pictured on a toddler! They're so feminine.

Here are a few pictures. A couple of them don't have centers in them yet.

You want the material to be polyester, possible nylon as well. Polyester is basically plastic in the form of material, so that's why it melts. Cotton will not melt. I would assume that brocade is a cotton or a cotton mixed with some poly? Check to see what it's made out of before you buy!

Here is my tutorial that I am offering free to HIP GIRL chicks...

and yes, if I dont mention it in my tutorial, different sized are important and you can layer them with fabric and organza.

Poly works, I have also had luck with some silks. I have also used a LIGHT brocade. What I find for satins, is they need to be a little heavier than the lining satins more like
Crepeback Satin which makes them super nice since it has some interest in it (sort of wrinkly), also duchess satin, they are both a little heavier. The thinner shiny satin makes it hard to work with and it is not as thick so it doesnt take on as much of a shape.

Here is my tutorial.

Those are so pretty! Love them! Can I ask how much you ladies are selling them for? I just got an order from a ladies boutique for these and I told her $7. She wants them on an alligator clip and a pin. She just placed an order for 28 of them! YEA!

Where did you buy your organza? I'm assuming you don't use organza ribbon because it's not real wide. Your flowers are gorgeous, BTW! I love the little ones...so cute!

How many layers did you end up using and how many of each size of circle/flower shape? I was going to try making some of these this weekend but I just got back from town & sliced my finger open one some glass. I probably need stitches, but hey, I'd rather spend the $ on ribbon Anywho, I'll see how well I can do it with an injured finger Any other tips on making these? Thanks!
