Dress up a simple tee or wear it in your hair, either way they are fun to make and wear.
Approximate Time: 15 minutes
Since you will be using flame this is not a craft for children and please be careful. Have a wet paper towel or small bowl of water close by! I don't intend to scare you I just want you to be careful and safe. These are easy and safe to make, but you must always be careful when using an open flame.
You will be melting the edges of the fabric by holding your fabric slightly above the flame. I use a tea candle so it sits low on the work surface.
If making your flower into a pin. Sew on a pin back and enjoy your synthetic silk flower.Try mixing different colors of fabric and different shapes of petal patterns for fun.
As you can see they can be used in a variety of ways. The red and blue tops were a little too low for wearing to some occasions and the flower makes a pretty solution to that temporary problem.
Dress up a plain tee with a grouping around the neck or on one shoulder. They are so light weight you won't know they are there. So cute on a clip in the hair and the little girls especially like having something no one else has as we all know. They are so quick and easy to make you can get 3 five layer flowers from one 1/8 yard of fabric.I found a great variety at JoAnn's Fabrics on sale for half price, that made my flowers around $2.50 each.

Those are so interesting! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much for showing us different colors and styles. I think they are very beautiful and unique. Seems like it would be easy to make a mistake with the flame though, but maybe that is just me and my klutziness. :)
Really cute! Thanks for sharing!
