Velvet Flower Tutorial…
Here is the wall hanging I created with scraps kept from my Cocoa Daisy June Kit. I provided Tricia with a PDF of all the templates I created in this piece. If you are a subscriber she will have this available for download.
The mini velvet flowers in this piece are super simple to create. All you need is scallop velvet trim (provided in the June Kit) , scissors, a sewing needle, 3 strands of embroidery floss, adhesive and a rhinestone.
Cut the trim so you have 9 scallops (approximately 3.25″) thread 3 strands of embroidery floss into a sewing needle and begin gathering at one end.
Continue to gather the trim along the sewing needle all the way to the opposite end of the trim
Pull the embroidery floss together tightly until you have formed a flower, tie a double knot to secure the thread, trim floss
Apply a strong liquid adhesive to the top center portion of the flower (I prefer Fabri-Tac)
Place a rhinestone on top of the liquid adhesive, let dry
