Making Flowers from Fabric and Burlap
Using these flowers I refashioned a set of old frames into Spring Burlap Frames.
To make Fabric Flowers
- Burlap and Fabric (of your choice)
- Sewing Machine
- Scissors and glue
Simply start by cutting strips of burlap and fabric. About 2 inches in width. And an approximate length (depending upon the size of the flower you want). Mine were random lengths from 12 to 30 centimeter.
Fold the 2″ wide strips into half and press if required. Then stitch and over-lock. I really found over-locking the burlap strips, after stitching; a very neat idea. As it gives a very finished look to burlap flowers. And no hanging strings.
Cut the strip using scissors at every 1/2″ interval. This will give the petals look of the final flower. (photo 2-3)
Make a small bud (by rolling a small piece of burlap) and start rolling the strip on the bud. Glue at the start and the end. (photo 4-6)
Keep folding around the bud and glue to seal the end.
