Still playing and learning about how different fabrics react to the flame…  And how cutting more petal shapes on a circle of fabric give these flowers a pretty ruffled look.  I actually cut five shallow slits around the edges of each circle, maybe 1/2 to 3/4 inches.  It didn’t take much to get the desired look.  Stacking the layers a little off center gives the final flower a fuller look as well.

My fav so far is the pink one.  This was very inexpensive lining material.  Love how just a touch of heat puckered and ruffled the edges.

 Reminds me of old-fashioned tea roses…


3 flowers


The dark pink organza was fun to play with, but not as fond of the shiny, glittery look.  The jazzy multi-colored one is actually the back of the fabric, with more muted colors.  Again, not as fond of the shiny front side.

Besides the usual lapel pin, these would be cute fastening a scarf or shawl, on a purse, pinned into the hair, or added to a chunky chain necklace.  Any other ideas??
