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
