Tuesday Tip: Easy Frilly Flowers
Posted by pacificfabrics on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011
I'm having so much fun making flowers with Clover's Flower Frill Templates!
They're simple and quick to make by folding the fabric according to the instructions on the easy-to-use templates. You just cut the petals, stitch them together and there you have it! Although they look like paper, the templates are made of a special material that is flexible enough to fold for your flower, but sturdy enough for you to use again and again. Here are a couple of tips . . .
Tip #1: Add petals of tulle to your fabric petals, to make a nice perky, full flower that holds it's shape well. I love using them as a brooch or an accessory on hats or bags. In our 2011 Sewing Expo booth, we all wore these on our aprons. Click here for a Flower Frill Embellishments project sheet from Clover.
Tip #2: Twist 16 gauge wire onto your finished flower to create a stem. Now you can have a beautiful bouquet to brighten up your Spring table and you didn't even have to get your hands dirty. No watering either! Click here for a Flower Frill Decor project sheet from Clover.
Flower Frill Templates come in two different size sets: Small/Medium or Large/Extra Large. You'll find the templates and various project sheets at all our stores and you will LOVE them!
