So I’ve been watching some sewing tutorials on youtube by “WhitneySews” she has some really cute simple projects that can work for any skill level. One of her most recent posts I loved was “Lollipop Flowers” where she teaches how to create simple fabric flowers with satin fabric and a lighter. I’ve been working on an idea that the flowers gave me but I’m going to have to make 20-30 of them which can become time consuming. Hopefully the end results are worth it. I used a deep purple satin from a belly dance skirt I made and haven’t worn in a while. For the center of the flower I used a pearl from a necklace I took apart.
They don’t take very long to make individually but be careful not to burn yourself I did once already by touching the part of the fabric I had just burned >.<
The lighting made them look navy and I don’t have photoshop at the moment (need to reinstall). These flowers are so cute though love them. I think if I tried some fading colors in the fabric I used it would be neat but that’d be another project. For this one I want a purple on purple effect. I’ll post a picture when I finish it.
Here’s the tutorial…
