NEW Bliss Flower Pattern! The art of millinery fabric flowers has long been regarded as an artisan craft until now! With the "Bliss" flower pattern you will learn how to make beautiful millinery flowers with household supplies!
Bliss can be small or LARGE. I even show you how to make a large bliss flower in to an elegant single flower bouquet:
Guess what? No flame is involved. You get beautifully shaped petals without a lighter, candle, match, torch....or whatever! I'll show you how.
Don't you think your life needs a little enjoyment? Perhaps a little Bliss?
Have you seen fabric flower statement necklaces around? Fabric flower jewelry seems to be all the rage! Admittedly, I have a short neck and can't seem to pull these bib necklaces off, but they are so much fun to make and some people look absolutely stunning while wearing these. Want to learn how I made this Gray, Pink and Cream necklace?
Let's first identify your materials and supplies. I will say that I used fabric flowers from my patterns but I will include how many inches I made each fabric flower so you can make your own or buy some!
Hot Glue (All Purpose)
Good Sharp Scissors
Lighter or Matches
2- 1.5" Glory Fabric Flowers
1- 3" Glory Fabric Flower
2- 2" Jessica Fabric Flowers
2- 2.5" Pouting Princess Fabric Flowers
2- 1.25" Eva Fabric Flowers
8" of wide lace (mine was about 4" wide)
1- 2" Bow (I made mine out of lace- it blends in to the picture a bit)
Felt or Fleece: 9" X 6" (fleece is softer on your neck)
3 "Bling" pieces (I used 2 super sparkly buttons that match and one that is a bit larger)
48" of Ribbon (I used a cream double ruffle)
Next, arrange your fabric flowers on your felt/ fleece. Here's the process I worked with to come up with the arrangement:
When you like your arrangement, trace around your fabric flowers:
Tip: I like to trace a little wider then my arrangement and cut it down later just to be safe.
Cut out the shape you traced.
Next, cut your ribbon in half. Thread your "bling" through one end of each ribbon strand, leaving a few inches of ribbon.
Glue your ribbon ends to the top corners of your felt/ fleece, then glue your lace in a rainbow shape between your "bling":
Tip: Take some of the scraps from your felt/ fleece and press down on the lace to protect your fingers from burns.
Next, place your fabric flowers on your felt/ fleece piece:
Individually glue each flower down, being careful to not get glue on the tops of flowers:
Trim your felt/ fleece so that it can't be seen from the front:
With your lighter or matches, heat seal the ends of your ribbon:
Find a great place to glue your bow and.....
Mmm..... If you've followed the tutorial, your "Majestic" statement necklace should be beautiful! Don't you just love fabric flower jewelry?
