Thanks for the comps, Aneesah!  I bought the pin backs from Hobby Lobby.  I don't know what country you are from but most large craft stores carry them.  Maybe try a fabric store like Joann Fabrics or retail like Wal-Mart.

Ah, yeah. I live in Malaysia, and craft stores are almost nonexistant. (Not big ones like those, anyway.)

But thanks!

i just had to make one to try out and it was super fun.  I don't have a glue gun so I just threaded around the flower twice and used elmer's glue and rubber cement to attach everything. haha


the colors are way more brighter and colorful in real life though.
great tutorial!!

It doesn't really work with paper. I tried practicing on origami paper when I first started doing them and you just really have to get your hands on fabric. The folds really come alive with the fabric.

Wow, I love these flowers! I'd tried to make them about a year ago, but it seems I'd been stuffing up step 5 (seems I wasn't the only one!). Anyway today I made some more plus some using the sewn circle instructions posted a few pages back. They turned out OK this time! Gingham one is the folded one, others are the sewn circles.

I also made a large tsumami-style one with recycled jeans, it was really bulky so I had to trim a huge amount off the back to get it to sit flat, then covered up the back with a big circle of felt. Don't have photos of that one. Anyway, I like the ones made of chiffon-type material better.

Cheers,
Miriam

i just can't seem to get my head around the technique used to get all the petals together. do you guys glue them to the underside of the button, or do you stitch them together? have you been trimming the pointy tails?


I even have the books from the library, there are hundreds of flowers in them, and i've tried a whole bunch of ideas, but mine just don't look nice. can anyone help?

I stitch them together, like this:  Grin



Only I make sure the petals are turned the right way. Wink And I trim the extra stuff, yes.

hee hee hee! that is a superb tutorial! you're so clever!

so you sort of arrange them and then stitch them. That's what i thought was going on. i must just not be doing it quite right and need to tinker a bit more. i'll give it a try again tomorrw when i should be studying. i just had a thought too though, i wonder if i pin them to the workspace they won't move while i'm getting the first few stitches in there.  i'll try that too.

More news later....
