A Tutorial: Fabulous Ric Rac Flowers » Matilda Jane Clothing Rocks. Let me start out with a warning or sorry of some sort.
The warning is because I have never done a Tutorial before, so I hope this is helpful and easy to follow. The sorry is for how horrible my nails look. I promise I did them after looking through these pics. WOW! I thought I would start off with a Flower, I too, just learned how to make. Material: Time-Roughly 20 minutes about 28 inches of Ric Rac ( This will make a flower about 2 inches in diameter) Suggestion: The thicker the Ric Rac the better Felt (Any Color) One sheet will be fine depending on how many flowers you want to make. Optional: Hair Clips, leaves or buttons Step One: Take the two pieces and hot glue them together. Note: You want to glue them together as if they are a mirror of one another. Step two: Lock in each curve of the first piece with the second. Say to yourself “over,under,over, under”. *If your piece does not look like this, then you most likely glued the two pieces going the wrong direction.
Pretty right? Cute right? Googly Eye Shoes. Scrap-Pieced Belt…(Use Up Those SCRAPS!!) Are you overwhelmed with scraps?
Or do you have small pieces of your favorite fabrics that you’ve been saving for the “perfect” project? I have another little project that I made for Bernina’s We All Sew site……..which used some some of my favorite vivid fabric scraps. All sorts of little pieces of fabric……pieced together into a new little belt. Great for girls……..and even boys. Just think of all the possibilities you can come up with when you peek into your scrap box. Such a great way to use up what you have. For the full Scrap-Pieced Belt tutorial, here. And enjoy.
