My fabulous cabin mate, Mystique (great name, huh?) taught me how to make these super easy fabric flowers. All you need is two kinds of synthetic fabric (here a satin and a sheer), contrasting green sheer fabric for leaves, a candle and some matches, needle and thread, center decorative brad, hot glue and pin.
To start, cut rough squares about 4", 3" and 2" (1 of each fabric). Then, using scissors, make into a four petal flower by rounding edges and cutting into middle. Don't worry if it's not perfect. All the better.
Then, light candle and carefully, sear the edges by running the edge of the fabric along the flame. You can see some of the edges got seared above but it adds character, in my opinion (LOL!).
Layer flower together with both fabrics. Tack flower to together with thread and needle. Cut contrasting green fabric square and tack that on. Cut into center of flower so decorative brad can go through. Insert brad. Hot glue on the pin backing.
Gorgeous, quick and easy!
