I am so very late on my May Sewing Swap over at Craftmad. Yes, MAY!! it should have been at my partners by now. We had to make two handmade fabric flowers. Well I have one done and another to do today.
This flower I made using some purple satin with a Snoopy print.
I followed the tutorial that I found here at Diamonds, Fur and Laundry.
I found it surprisingly satisfying sitting there burning the edges of the material.
Probably not a great project to do when the kids are around as they may get ideas.
The only downside was that after burning all the layers I ended up with a yellow glow in my eyes from staring at the flame for so long. lol
My flower has nine (9) layers.
An update on what is happening over at Craftmad.
