This is my first tutorial for the Pixie Cottage. I wanted to show you how to make some flowers from nylon organza and tulle. I have made three different ones. #1. You will cut graduating circles. They do not need be perfect just a rough circular shape. #2. You will cut some petal shapes. Also cut some of these in green for leaves. #3. Cut a long strip about 15" long and 1 1/2 " wide and some small circles. You need nylon or polyester in order to create the melted edges.
You can use matches or one of those little lighters for BarB Qs. I find wooden matches work just fine. You want to just pounce it quickly along the edges. The edges will melt and curl a little. Dont get to close or the heat will just melt it up into a little ball. Make a few extras to practice on.
You can then stack as many layers as you like for fullness. Next using a needle and thread you will come up from the bottom in the center and stitch together. For centers you can add buttons like I have used or pearls, jewels beads etc. Stitch on your leaves and you have some fun flowers. For the third one I did a running stitch down one side pulled up the gather, wrapped around then added the stacked circles for the center.
Here are three I've created, a close up of the one.There are limitless possibilities with the basics.
