A quick fabric flower tutorial today.
I was shopping in The Range to buy a barbecue but found myself in the craft section
and discovered they sell packs of linen craft sheets. They measure 15cm square,
6 sheets to a pack and only £1.50!
Not a huge choice in designs, this flower one and hearts but a bargain nonetheless.
As soon as I was in my cabin I grabbed Classic Scalloped Circles LG
and began die cutting. It cut beautifully through my Grand Calibur.
I kept cutting!
When I had enough pieces in varying sizes I folded each one into a quarter to find the middle,
cut to that point.
I then overlapped the fabric by a small section to create a sort of cup.
Fabri-Tac glued it instantly.
The finishing touch, a button for the middle.
These came free with a magazine some time ago.
The finished flower, would look great on a bag, hat, decorate a gift.
Mine is being attached to the top of my 'travelling' Grand Calibur!
My next demo date is Saturday 18 July at Keep on Crafting in Bury St Edmunds.
The tour list is here.
I did buy a barbecue and we had our first one of the year last night,
as usual I ate more than my own body weight in rather blackened meat and
thoroughly enjoyed it!
Take care friends.
