I hope somebody still visits my blog.
I am not going to write much details about my private life on this blog, but there is something I have to share because it does affect my crafting a lot; I have been having problems with my employer for several months now (working but not being paid) and finally have been laid-off from my job a week ago. That puts lots of pressure and put me a bit down and off crafting, but I am coming back to it slowly.
Now back to the tutorial. This flower is inspired by most recent releases by Prima. I figured out two ways of making them, one way is very fiddly, and I just could not manage to do it and take photos at the same time, might do video once, but I am not that brave at the moment. So I will show you my second option:
You will need:
- A pair of scissors
- Bigger jump ring or some ring made of wire
- Glue gun,
- Paper circle, and some flower centre
- Optional: Crochet hook and mist and/or paint
- Cut raffia into pieces at least 2.5 times longer then you want diameter of your flower to be. I'd say, about 30 of these is needed.
- Fold each piece of raffia into half and crochet (hm mm.. is that a right word, I am not sure, but I thing the photos show what I mean) it onto your ring. keep doing this until the flower is dense as desired.
- Then take some template circle and trim the flower to the desired size and shape. Glue gun paper circle on the back side and chosen flower centre on the front of the flower.
And this is all for now. I hope this will be useful.
Be back later
