Attention all flower child crafters. I tried these amazing, quick, easy organza flowers using the no-sew tutorial instructions on this site http://www.pompomemporium.com/content/how-make-fabric-flowers-organza with great success.
Cost of fabric – only $1.67 for 1/3 yard of polyester organza fabric to make five flowers. They can be used for party decor, jewelry necklace, bracelet or lapel pin, headband, refrigerator magnet, napkin ring or home decor craft. Perfect for a little princess Halloween costume or for decorating a birthday or holiday package! Deck out your pet and embellish a dog or cat collar.
The process is to singe cut organza shapes and hold each with needle-nose pliers over a tea light candle so they singe and curl. Colors works best, as the singe marks on the fabric create a stunningly beautiful shades. Even better to use organza dyed in numerous shades of a color, for variation in color, as opposed to just one flat color. Samples here were single color organza. I glued shiny microbeads into center of flowers using Art Accentz Shimmerz all-purpose iridescent glue, as opposed to sewing.
NEW SPIN-OFF IDEA – MINI ORGANZA FLOWERS! Try these mini organza flowers too. I made 15 and decided to sew them to an old black skirt (to make it all-new again). Use button & carpet thread, which is really tough, so you only need one thread loop per flower before tying it off at the back. When laundering, just wash in a lingerie bag to protect the garment, flowers beads.
