Here's how you can make your very own fabric flowers.
Supplies you will need:
- silk chiffon or silk organza fabric
- needle and matching thread
- fabric scissors
- candle or lighter
Pick out and purchase the fabric you will be using. I purchased 2 yards of this lovely peachy organza from my local discount fabric store.
Layer up the fabric and cut out circles is varying sizes. I was making fairly smaller blooms so I cut 3 sizes in small, medium and large.
Use a candle or lighter to slightly singe the edges of the cut fabric circles. I recommend using the candle, it is much easier and has a more stable flame (as long as you are not in a windy room).
The singed circles should curl up a bit and look like real flower petals
Fold, roll and sew the circles together to create the perfect shape. I found inspiration photos online of different garden roses for my blooms.
Here are two more bigger blooms I made last week
