Цветы из ткани


Can you say gorgeous?! I fell instantly in love with this look, and while it was shown on a bride, I thought it would look equally awesome on the little ones.

The bows on the sashes that I ordered are removable, so there would be a nice open space in the back to add flowers, just like in the picture above. And so, I was a girl on a mission.
After seeing this amazing paper rose tutorial on Vintage Glam Blog (now Ruffled), I wondered if this technique could translate into fabric. Since I already had a sewing machine and a bunch of fabric from my outrageous DIY table overlay idea, I decided to give it a shot. After a little experimenting, I was making my own fabric flowers. Granted, they are not as pretty as the ones in the picture above, but I think they’re cute enough in person. :)
I’ve made a bunch of different sizes in the colors seen below.

And in case any of you are looking for another fabric flower tutorial, here’s one with a new twist! Before you start, I recommend checking out the Ruffled tutorial so that these instructions are a bit easier to follow. And please pardon my terrible pictures; the lighting in our apartment is horrible. OK, here we go!
Step 1: Cut your fabric into a rectangle, then fold it in half so that you’ve got two overlapping squares - right side in, wrong side out (I chose this fabric because it has two obvious sides; for our purposes, the lighter side is the “right” side and the red is the “wrong” side).

Step 2: Pin your two pieces of fabric together in a spiral pattern

Step 3: Cut in between your pin lines so that you end up with a fully-pinned, fabric spiral cut-out

Step 4: Get to your sewing machine! Sew along the outer edge of your fabric spiral with about a quarter of an inch border

Step 5: Flip over your now-sewn spiral so that it’s right side out

Step 6: Beginning at the outer edge of the spiral, start rolling up your fabric (you can roll it up as tight or as loose as you’d like, it will only impact the size of your final product)

Step 7: As you roll and position the layers of your rosette, occasionally throw anchoring stitches through your flower base

Step 8: Once you reach the end of your spiral, anchor everything down on the flower base with stitches. It doesn’t have to be perfect, as no one will be seeing this side.

Once the sashes come in, I’ll experiment with the flowers and see how they look! I hope to be able to accurately recreate my Martha inspiration - fingers crossed!источник
