Flower Tutorial - part 1

Post by Jill on Thu Jul 02, 2009 8:33 pm

Hi ladies,

I'm going to share with you a technique to make beautiful ribbon flowers, in no time!!

First off, here is a list of supplies. You really only need a needle,about 12 inches of ribbon, two way tape, glue or glue dots and a center for your flower (i.e. a button or a circle of pp or anything else you think of!)



Now, we are ready to get started:
Start by threading your needle with embroidery floss and stitch free hand close to the edge of the ribbon. Go about 4-5 threads and pull through, knotting your floss at the end. Please note that you can use pretty much any colour of embroidery floss - you won't see it in the end! Smile



This is what it should look like, as you continue threading:


Go the entire length of the ribbon, pulling a bit each time.
Once you have done the length of your ribbon, you should have a piece that looks somewhat like this. The more you've pulled the thread, the more curled your ribbon will be:





Gently pull the ribbon and mold it into the shape you want. Be careful that you don't pull the thread too hard or your knot may pull through the ribbon, depending on the type of ribbon you are using.

Once you have pulled the thread and have the flower the size and shape you want, you need to attach the ends. I just used 2 sided tape but you can use glue dots, glue or even stitch them if you like.

Once the ends are put together, your flower should look like this:


Now you are ready to add a center to your flower. I just used a button but the sky is the limit - get creative, let's see what you have!



So, make a flower - let's see .... for every flower you make, you get a point!!

Happy creating!
Jill
