Tutorial: Satin Flowers

I have seen these all over (including youtube) - how to make  a flower from polyester satin.  The secret is to singe the fabric with a lighter - although I used a wood burning tool with greater success (less likely to get burn marks on as well); this gives the curl to the edge of the petals.  The tutorial is for a three and a half inch flower but if you want it larger or smaller just adjust the size of the circle templates you use.

Tutorial: Denim rosettes

Proving that nothing should ever be thrown away click here for how to create these rosettes from a hem plus a little extra fabric.

The tutorial shows them made into a brooch but would also work for a headband or clip or as a decoration on something like a bag.
