After yesterday’s post I got the question how that flower/rosette was made from the canvas fringe, so for the ones whom are interested here is the step by step for making a canvas fringe embellishment. And if you need canvas fringe you can get from Canvas Corp Brands of course, just click the link. You need a needle, some thread and the simplest button that comes into your hand. That’s going to be the end result (here it’s not coloured):
You can use them on scrapbook layouts, or on your cards, (just to remind you it is a great deco on packages as well, you can colour them with Glimmer mists), or in your art journal/altered book like me:
So to create a flower/rosette like that, you need 11 inch or 29 cm of canvas fringe, that you need to cut in half so you will have actually 2 pieces (5,5′ and 5,5′ or 14,5′ and 14,5′).
Stitch together the 2 ends of the first piece (5,5′ or 14,5′) like a ring.
Then gather one side with small stitches, pull them strong and make a knot.
Now comes the second layer, so you need the second piece (5,5′ or 14,5′), fold it into half for the length, and sew the two edges together making the same ring like the first time just thinner.
Now again you need to gather one side to the middle and pull it strong, but don’t knot or cut the thread yet.
Now you need to put the second petal layer on top of the first one and make a stitch or two to fast them together.
Finally add your button and tadaah:
The ready size that you get is app 2 inch or app 5 cm depending on how strong you pulled in the middle. You can colour the fringe before or you can colour embellishment. Have fun!
