These days I feel romantic. This is really weird, because I’m the least romantic person in the world. And most of the time, this is reflected in my dress style. I like to wear sexy or sport clothes. But sometimes I like to add romantic accessories to my style. Maybe because I feel more naive, or more feminine? And why? Am I in love? Or simply, it will have to do with my hormonal cycles?
Anyway, I’ve been doing flowers with the remains of fabric that had. I followed two different techniques, very easy both, and with different results.
First, I tried a technic explained in “Generation T: beyond fashion“:
1- Cut a small circle in fabric (about 10 cm in diameter).
2- Sew a basting stitch around the outside edge of the circle:
3- Pull the thread to gather the fabric. The result will be a kind of little pouch.
4- Press the opening into the center of the pouch, and you will have your flower.
As I said before, there is another way of doing flowers:
1- Cut a strip of fabric, more or less 2 cm by 10cm
2- Sew a stitch along one of the edges of the strip
3- Pull the thread to gather the fabric.
4- Sew both extremes of the strip, and voilá!
I didn’t know what flower I like more!
Maybe is better the second one, mainly because cutting a strip of fabric is easier than cutting a circle. Besides, you will make the most of the fabric cutting strips, because, what can you do with the remains of cutting a circle?
