My sparkle: How To: Rolled Fabric Flowers

My sparkle: How To: Rolled Fabric Flowers
So I am jumping on the bandwagon and loving all the rolled fabric flowers I've seen here and there. We decided to make some with the girls in our church youth group, but I couldn't find a great tutorial on how to make them so I played around and this is what I came up with.Enjoy! Start with about a 1" ripped strip of fabric (you can use any width...this was the width I liked best). The length and weight of your fabric will dictate the end diameter of your flower. Fold the strip in half and dot a little fabric glue on the end 1/2" or so. Roll the glued end a few times to get a nice tight center. Then, once you have a center you like, start twist/folding your fabric away from the center as you roll. It will start to look like this. Continue rolling until you have a flower that is sized the way you like, but make sure you leave at least a 1" or 2" tail (enough to cover flower bottom). Spread glue all over the bottom side of the flower. Then fold tail down to cover glue. Maybe. Related:  Vyráběnífashion crafts

They are so versatile-- you can wear them as shoe clips, hair clips, broaches, whatever you want! I've also attached them to headbands. (Photo from last year when I was obsessively watching Mad Men and attempting the bee hive hairdo. How to Make Simple Bows: Step 1: First you need to cut a rectangle of fabric with a little sliver of fabric to set off to the side. Step 2: Next you need to fold the fabric onto itself, lengthwise. Step 3: Now fold the fabric in the other way to to middle. Step 4: Stitch those bad boys together. Step 5: With a curling iron, straightener, or iron, press the sides of the little sliver of fabric together. Step 6: All done!

Little Red Infinity Dress Tutorial | Sew Like My Mom February 14, 2011 I’m always searching for a beautiful, well-fitting, versatile dress, and I finally found it. In fact, I MADE it. I made my infinity dress in about 3 hours and for under $20! I found these infinity dresses on Craftster years ago and have always loved them. First, you need to do some measuring. So, 30/6.28 = 4.7. Then I decided on length of skirt and came up with 18″. To make your straps, you need to decide how wide to make them. To determine strap length, you need to make them 1.5 times your height. So, got that? To make your pattern, get packing paper, freezer paper, or a bunch of pieces of computer paper taped together. Then I measured 18″ down from that and made another line for my skirt length. Cut out on your lines. Now, keeping your fabric folded in half with selvages matched, fold the fabric in from the end so it’s doubled on itself. Next, cut a waistband 10″ tall and the length of your waist you measured. Next you’ll have to cut your straps. Get your straps.

Rolled Fabric Flower Belts Remember several weeks ago when I showed you how I made my girls some rolled fabric flower headbands? (Click here if you missed that post.) Well, we also made some belts using that same fun rolled fabric flower idea, but I got so busy with Spring decorating and Easter fun, that I'm just now getting around to showing them.So, here they are now, modeled by myself and my Lily... Very little or no sewing required. And super-easy and cute for girls of all ages.All you need to make these are some rolled fabric flowers just like we used on the headbands, 2 to 3 inches of velcro, and enough elastic to go around your waist. I made one with basic white elastic for myself. To make the belt, just wrap the elastic around your waist, allowing it to overlap by 3 inches on each end. Lastly, just hot glue the flower onto one end of the belt and you're done. I told you these are easy! These are so much fun, they make you just want to twirl. Too bad I can't find those pictures of me twirling, too!

Vodotěsné šití – nepromokavá bunda (Minoru jacket) « Nitě všude Moje stará softshellová bunda změnila postupem času barvu z blankytně modré na nehezky zašedlou s dírami od ohně a tak nastal čas na novou. Tentokrát vynechám outdoorové obchody a zkusím něco sama. Přeci jenom to outdoorové oblečení tolik nepoužívám, tak za něj přeci nebudu dávat tisíce. Chci jen něco co nepromokne až budu zase někde stát v dešti na koncertě a neprofouklo při občasných výletech. Stará bunda, měla jednu velkou nevýhodu, byla krátká. Při každém ohnutí jsem si jí musela upravovat, aby mi netáhlo na záda. Takže materiál. Protože jsem byla trošku v časovém presu před nadcházejícím výletem, rozhodla jsem se střih stáhnout, místo klasického doručení poštou. Měla jsem jen dva metry látky o šíři 150 cm a střih doporučoval 2 1/2 yardu (cca 240 cm), takže jsem byla připravena improvizovat se zbytky softshellu, případně zkracovat, ale kupodivu se mi podařilo všechny díly na látku vtěsnat a ještě mi kousek zbyl (naštěstí nemám na látce žádný vzor). Další pokusy už byly lepší.

Gorgeous Chiffon and Tulle Flowers - DIY: Gorgeous Chiffon and Tulle Flowers Photos By: Olivia Kanaley For this project you will need fabric - we used chiffon and tulle. Yardage needed will vary based on the number and size of flowers, as well as the fabric thickness. You'll also need a piece of paper, a pen, scissors, pins, needle and thread, glass seed beads, and a plain hair clip or comb. To make a stencil first free hand a rose petal shape and cut out. Take some fabric and fold it into a square a little larger than your flower pattern. Stack flower cut outs, alternating fabric types and staggering petals. Pinch together the center of the flower (from the bottom) and secure with stitches to create volume and give the flower and authentic shape. If desired you can sew decorative beads in the inside center of the flower. Finally, sew the flower to a hair clip or comb. You can also create a tie-on corsage or sash, by sewing one or more flowers to a length of silk ribbon.

No-Sew Fabric Flower Belts I'm kind-of a fanatic about fabric flowers. Basically, I'm crazy about flower pins, ga-ga for flower headbands, & I've never met a flower belt I didn't like. And after I'd bought 2 fabric flower belts in the past few months, I thought, "What am I doing? I could so make these." So, that's what I did. And if you love a good flower belt, you can make one, too! Here's what to do: Choose one of your own belts that you'd like to add a flower to. You'll need some felt in a coordinating color. (1/8th of a yard will be more than enough for this project) You'll also need some scissors & a hot glue gun. Start off by creating a belt slide. Then, just squeeze a strip of hot glue along the top & bottom edge & sandwich them together to create your slide. Next, you're ready to create your flowers. For these, just cut approximately {8} 3-inch circles for each flower. Squeeze a little hot glue into the center of one of the circles & then pinch it together to make a little fluffy bunch. Hope you like these!
