Quick Crochet Flower
1.Take your desired amount of crochet trim or ribbon; I used about 2 foot of The Girl's Paperie JUBILEE crochet trim.
2. From the right end, fold the edge of the trim over to the left (as shown in photo #1). Leave about a 2" tail.
3. Next, fold the folded edge again to the left (you may do this a couple of times, depending on the width of the material used.) Photo #2.
4. Hold the folded end in your right hand securely and the longer length of trim in your left hand.
5. With the left hand, begin turning the trim as you work counter-clockwise against the trim held in your right hand. Photo #3.
6. Continue folding the trim as you create the desired 'petal' looks. It maybe necessary to add a little dab of fabric glue between layers to secure it as you're working.
7. Once you've reached the desired look, snip off any remaining ribbon and carefully glue down with fabric glue. Attach to a felt or paper circle. Your Scrapbook Stash NOW carries GLUBBERS from Cosmo Cricket, which make the ideal base for your fabric flowers.
Embellish as desired. I also used the seam binding, cabochon and pennant from The Girl's Paperie Jubliee line :)
Perfect for cards, package or bag accents, lapel pins, hair bands, barrettes, Christmas tree decorations, jar toppers and lots more. I really liked working with the crochet trim; it's easy to manipulate and stays true to form as you're working. Let me know if you have any questions.
Enjoy the HOP...see you soon!
