Velvet Flower Tutorial…

Jun 2, 2009

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.

Wall Hanging

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.

Begin gathering trim

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.

gather all the way to the end

Continue to gather the trim along the sewing needle all the way to the opposite end of the trim

tie a double knot on the back

Pull the embroidery floss together tightly until you have formed a flower, tie a double knot to secure the thread, trim floss

Add strong liquid adhesive to the top center of the flower

Apply a strong liquid adhesive to the top center portion of the flower (I prefer Fabri-Tac)

Add rhinestone

Place a rhinestone on top of the liquid adhesive, let dry
