Robelyn Has Me Hooked
We've been making flowers 'round here! I've seen them around on the web, and had tried a couple, but hadn't burned the edges. Robelyn posted about them here and I HAD to try more. There are more--just not around for the "shoot". I added some to head bands too.
This button and fabric came from a vintage jacket I bought at an auction.
This pin was made from two different vintage ties, some tulle, and a few beads.
I did learn to place the pin back towards the top of the back, not in the center. Then it hangs properly when pinned.
This red one was made from scraps of red velvet I had. All it takes is scraps!
The burning for some of the fabrics what really sets them off. Some fabric just doesn't burn or melt right, so then you get a different look without it.
And, this one used the other button from the jacket and pieces from a vintage dress I have had forever. In too bad of shape to sell. It was hard cutting up the clothes, but really what else can you do with them when they are rough and stained?
I'm hoping to add a few to bags....I have a big pile of fabric just waiting to be burned!
