After all these petals I’ve been doing I thought it might be time to re-do this tutorial for those of you who are newer to the blog. I just love this way of doing petals…it saves TONS of time.
First, cut out a petal template using heat resistant Mylar or Templar.
Trace onto the wrong side of your fabric and mark. Cut ¼ outside marked line.
Make a small running stitch in the seam allowance. I’m just using regular thread here, nothing fancy.
Place onto your pressing surface.
I hold the corners in.
Pull thread until the seam allowance wraps around to the back…make sure you keep holding the corners down.
Dab on some starch and place your iron on top of it. Leave iron on until dry and remove.
Here is your petal, just pop out your template and you are ready to use it to make another.
See how perfect it is?
Now you can use it to make your scrappy daisies.
Photoshop Elements tutorials are coming next week…I haven’t forgotten.
