Holy schnikes, my ironing board looks dirty.
Okay, well… ignore that. Fold it in half again and iron it so it looks like a little pizza slice; these will be the petals of the flower.
CAUTION: Pulling too hard may break your thread… uh… yeah.
But that’s never happened to me… I wouldn’t try using the same thread and breaking it over and over, because I learn from my mistakes the first time. Or the seventh.
Whatever. I now use a polyester cotton blend thread when making my bows because it’s much sturdier and I’m less likely to get frustrated and throw the thread across the room.
Okay, I’ve never really thrown the thread. Talked threateningly and asked questions of it… ‘What is your problem, thread?!?’ ‘ARGH!!! Why won’t you just do what I want?’ Yes. That I have done. Moving on…
Now you get to choose something to cover the center of the flower. I chose a button, but you could use a yo yo or anything sized right. Get creative!
My flower is finished. I used this one to embellish an apron I made for Lovely L’s 11th birthday.
Hmmm… I need to think about cleaning up before taking these pictures. Or at least shoving things out of the way. Unless you’re really interested in what kind of vacuum I use. I bought it ‘cause it’s purple. I can’t make this stuff up, people…
