Default Cherry Blossom

Has anyone ever made or know how to make one? I live right near Macon and that is where the Cherry Blossom Festival is. My dad has a booth set up and said I cna put some bows out there. I would love to have some cherry blossom clippies.

It is pale pink.

Thanks

like a cherry clippie? If that's the one, it's in the instructions. If it's not, apology in advance...

Can you just use a cherry Blossom silk flower for the clippie?
Or do you want to use ribbons to make out the shape of cherry blossom?

I LOVE cherry blossoms-- especially love the cherry blossom festival in Japan.

Lauren, how soon do you need the how-to? I will try and attempt it this week. Well, not that I'm good at it but I will try and attempt something that will, maybe, resemble a cherry blossom flower...

Okay, so this idea is WAY not as cool as the link above, but what if you took ribbon and 'gathered' one side of it (with a needle and thread). I think there was directions for this a while back. They would make little flowers, that MIGHT look kind of close to what you're looking for.

Sorry, I know that's a lame attempt, but I'm sure you'll find something better!

You could do a 5 petal flower with a 4 petal flower ontop and just get the right color ribbon. Here is how to make a 5 petal and 4 petal flower... (see pattern below)


To experiment with cut about 12 -12 1/2 RW (Rw is your ribbon width: ex 5 RW is the width of your ribbon times 5). Seal ends.

Leave about 1/8" at each end or ribbon when you begin stitching, Divide the ribbon into five lengths by folding to help keep the petal even. Make the petals about 2 -2 1/2 RWs.

Sew a continuous stitch starting at one end of ribbon with a knotted thread (heavy thread, I use floss) and backstitch over the edge to make sure the knot is secure. When you get to the end of one petal at the bottom you will either 1. exit the back and then lift your needle up and over the edge to continue to stitch onthe front or 2. the thread exited the front adn you will then bring you needle down adn under the edge to continue the stitch at the back. I usually start drawing in my petal after each one seems to be easier to me and it lets me check my petal size.


You will then stitch to the end leaving 1/8 " and then start pulling the thread in tightly to form the flower. Backstitch and knot but don't cut your thread.

You will then put your needle through the beginning knot and pull tight closing the flower and you will then backstitch and knot again to complete your flower petals. You can then instert some stamen through the middle to give it the true cherry blossom look.


I will have some time Wednesday to maybe take some step by step pics. But, I drew a picture of what the stitch is suppose to look like. It is in adobe since I scanned it.

I hope this helps.
