Organza flowers are very simple to make and can be used in many ways to add a touch of spring to your home or outfit.
You must purchase 100% organza (you can find it at any fabric store). I make paper patterns freehand in the shapes of stars and flowers:
I cut the shapes from the fabric and melt the edges:
You must set up a station which will include a candle and a bowl of water. TRUST ME....you need the water in case the fabric catches on fire...again....trust me!!
You must "melt" the edges of the organza so that is will not fray. Holding it a few inches above the candle will work well...any closer and you will certainly need the bowl of water!
I then layer about 5-7 pieces of fabric and go to my beads to create the centers:
I stitch up through all layers and thread 3 beads onto the needle and stitch through to the back, knotting.
And that's all there is to it. So, now what to do with these cute flowers? I add them to little romantic pillows:
Adding tassels, pins, keys, etc:
Or you can turn them into pins, headbands, or belts:
Let me know if you try this!!
