This is for Niki, with thanks.
First tear a piece of velvet, hand dyed silk is mine. About 16 x 1.5"
Fold concertina style and cut rounded shapes along edge,
leave a small piece attached on other edge.
See picture, run a gather right along velvet and pull up threads and tie together securely.
Next sew around center again, and add a pearl.
Make leaves by cutting green velvet with pinking sheers, I make an almond shape.
Cut small slits along each edge, trim a bit off each divot.
Fold and steam iron for a vein.
Create two leaves .
To finish the corsage, sew the leaves to the back of the flower, add some silk rippins, that is looped and attached to back.
See a few ideas for using the pretty flower, above this.
Love to see what you make with my project.
