Tuesday's Tute: Make a Carnation!
Lightweight fabric or ribbon for strips: Chiffon, organza, tulle, and lace make good choices. For a flower of this size you'll need enough to net 12 feet of 1" strips or 12 feet of lightweight ribbon. Fabric that frays will need to be cut on the bias, therefore more fabric is needed for that. I used part of 1/2 yd. of chiffon.
Felt circle 50 cent piece in size
Needle and thread
Sewing machine and supplies
Cutting supplies: I used a rotary cutter and mat to make quick work of the 1" strips
6. This is what the back of the carnation will look like when you finish.
