10/23 Michelle's fabric roses tutorial

Here's a simple little tutorial on how to make fabric roses.
 
Cut a variety of different sized circles from a nylon based fabric
Chiffon, satin, tulle and organza work best.
You need to make sure that your fabric does not contain any cotton or it will burn and catch on fire. This is very important as it can be dangerous.


Use a small lit tea light candle and hold the edge of your fabric circle just above the flame until it starts to melt and continue to melt all the way around your petal.


Stack your finished petals from largest to smallest .



Stitch a button or bead in the middle and there you have it, a fabric rose all ready to stick on your layout or card.
