You will need a very lightweight synthetic material, I used the lining from an old bridesmaid dress. Why synthetic? So that it will melt when you singe the edges of the flower petals rather than burn. The lighter the fabric, the more it will curl when you singe around the petals. Thicker fabrics singe, but retain more of a flat shape and aren’t suitable for this type of flower. You won’t need more than 1/8 yard of fabric though, so if you’re not sure, just buy small amounts of a variety of synthetics. Once you’ve experimented a little at home, you’ll have a better idea which fabric to use in the future.
- 1/2″ wide strips of fabric in varying lengths (2 – 14″ long strips, 1 – 38″ long strip)
- flower trim – 2-3 pieces
- tulle – small piece
- felt for backing
- brooch pin
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
This week’s collection is luxurious and indulgent. It’s impractical and irresistable. Dark chocolate molded bunnies, a white silk toddler dress, chocolate cupcakes with white fondant decoration, brown eggs with love notes inside, white tulips . . . I love it. LOVE it.
