First post hehe Cheesy I've been watching you all sharing and explaining your great ideas and I felt I should give a little something back to the community! (anyways, my knowledge is scarce in sewing or crafting.)

So here's a really easy way of creating lovely little fabric flowers to be used practically anywhere! rings - necklaces - clothing - hair accessory!



All you need is a ribbon of fabric about 2 or 3cm wide, the length is accordingly to the size of the flower desired (you can also use scrap fabric from other projects).



Here I used a satin ribbon ~15cm long. I burned the edges a little so they won't wear out and also because I like the shiny effect! Well, I rolled one edge to make the center of the flower and then randomly twisted the ribbon around it. Finally I brought the ending underneath the flower and made a few stitches to hold it in place. If you like to add some beads, that's the time to do it!

The whole process only takes about ten minutes! It's a real quicky!

Thanks for looking crafters! I would really love to see what you'll come up with if you try this yourselves!

thank you lola ^^

Here's some action pictures too as rings!



I especially like how the red one came out. I used a nylon ribbon which was much easier to handle than other fabrics and made stable corners simulating the flower's petals.
