Shabby Flower Tutorial

Hi everyone how are you all?
Did you get chance to have a look at our current challenge over at the
Stamping With The Dragon
  challenge blog
We have a fab prize on offer again this fortnight and there is still a couple of days left to get your entries in. We have had some amazing entries so far so a huge thank you to all.
Today we are sharing with you a tutorial showing how to create Shabby Flowers and here it is:
Pic 1
A selection of materials to use.
Roughly cut some circles from the fabric organza and net shown in picture
Pic 2
Roll or fold a circle together and hold with a pair of tweezers. Next gently pass over the end furthest away from the tweezers with your heatgun until it starts to melt, once this happens remove the tweezers and put to one side. Repeat this step until you have the number of layers that you require. ( I used 5 )
Pic 3
Take your layers of fabric ( I have used organza) and stitch them together. Add a button or bead in the centre if you wish.

Pic 4
 Completed flowers
Both net and organza have been used in the blue flower.
And that's it, Shabby Flowers.
Would love for you to have a go at this. Please do show us what you create. Pop along to the Stamping Dragon Facebook group where there are lots of fun and exciting things going on including the brand new Loyalty Points scheme!

Happy Crafting.
