How to make a flower from a satin ribbon
Today I will show you how easily and simply make an exclusive bobby pin for your little child.
- Satin ribbon width of 1.5 inches (4 cm)
- Needle with a thread
- Buttons or beads for decoration
- Candle or lighter for fusing edges
We cut the ribbon into squares. For one flower – five squares, that is you’ll get five petals. If you want richer flower, make more squares.
We work up cuts above the candle or lighter. Burnt edges we fold to the middle.
We press the bends with a finger so that they won’t unfold. We fold our strip in half again so to get a small square.
We stitch the bottom with a seam “needle forward”.
We fold the rest petals and string them on the same thread by the same way.
We tighten the edges and stitch them together, as if in a ring. We get a flower.
Now what is left is only to decorate the middle on your own. You will need pretty buttons, beads for this. You can sew an elastic or invisible hairpin to it on the back side. And you may sew the ready flower to clothes and get a decoration element.
- The flower may be made polypetalous, by laying on several flowers, different in size – beyond – the bigger, above – the smaller one. You may use petals of different color as well. In a word – show creativity and fantasy!
