DIY fabric flowers - peony



There are many ways to make flowerlike shapes and details from ribbons, fabric pieces and strips, almost as many as there are makers. This satin ribbon Peony-tutorial is by Calli over at Make It Do. I think it would look great when made from raw edged denim, as the fabric edge frays beautifully. These flowers can be made just a few for decorations, or you can over large areas (from garments) with them.

  1. ohh, i've been on the lookout for good tips on making flowery figures, thanks for the heads-up! queen michelle from kingdom of style made a skirt out of shower flowers which, in spite of her modesty, looked nothing short of amazing!

  2. I saw that! It looked great. Who says you have to make these from ribbons that are 1 inch wide?! The fabric strips used could be 3-5 inches wide to make a bigger couturelike peony :D

    Ohje on englanniksi, mutta kuvistakin saa hyvin selvää.
