Fabric Flowers Part 1.5

So I know I said that I would be working on different kinds of flowers.... but upon showing off the flowers in the previous post I got a request. I love requests, so naturally I had to fulfill....

The request was for one dozen pink flowers for a team of walkers to wear during the Avon Walk for breast cancer. Something to make the team feel unified and stand out.

They came out great!

Each flower had a snap clip attached to the back so the walkers could either put it in their hair or attach to their clothing if they'd rather. I forgot to take pictures of the backs... next time.

The second time around, I did not use a candle. I used a lighter... and I think the result speaks for itself. The lighter was much easier to control and I didn't have any random brown burn spots on the edges. Going forward, I will definitely use this technique. I also added more layers of petals to make the flowers look fuller.

At some point this weekend, I will finish my flower rosettes. Post coming soon.
