A few people asked me how I made the fabric flower on this ATC:
Stamps (Hero Arts) - Clouds & Big And Small Flowers
I thought it would be easier to explain in pictures how I made it, so put together a little photo tutorial on the process. The flowers are really easy to make and can be made with just small pieces of fabric - I hope you give them a try!
Cut 5 circles of the same size out of fabric. I used my Cuttlebug which made it really quick.
Fold each fabric circle in half.
Fold in half again.
Using a running stitch sew along the curved side, a little bit down from the raw edge. I would usually use a matching thread but went for white thread this time so the stitching would be more obvious in the photos.
Add the next petal to the length of thread using a running stitch.
Continue adding petals with the running stitch until all five petals have been added. As you can see you don't have to be fussy about doing even stitches!
Holding the two ends of the thread, pull tightly to gather the petals together and knot 3\4 times.
Snip the ends of the thread and add a button, large gem or yo yo to the centre to cover up the raw edges.
