  2. These are beautiful and realistic looking! Our real peonies are already gone, so I would make these and put them in a vase. Pinned this idea-thanks for sharing :)

  8. Aimee - great tutorial. I can see a swath of these with tulle hanging across a mantel. I just got a huge bag of netting so materials are ready. Hope I don't burn the house down!

  10. These are beautiful!! I just love fabric flowers. Is there anything better than something so pretty, that will LAST! I love a good bouquet just as much as the next girl, but it makes me so sad when the flowers die! Thank you for the tutorial :)

  16. These a great. Do you have any suggestions on how to put a stem on them and make a bouquet? Also, I am a little confused about how to sew them together. Do I just wing it? I am a new follower. Hope to see you at True Aim.

  24. These are so beautiful! I decided to give them a go and I wanted to get some clarification on how to sew the petals together. Do you sew them to eachother starting from the outside petals, going inward? Or do you just stack them up and sew through the center? It's hard for me to tell from the picture.

    Thanks!

    1. Did you ever figure it out? I'm having trouble figuring it out myself so I just have a bunch of ready to go petals!

  25. I hope you will correct this tutorial. 100% silk will not curl with heat, only burn. Now i have two chopped up blouses :( Good news is anything synthetic works beautifully !

  26. You arrange the largest petals in a flower shape then take the needle through them all at once. Then do the same with the next layer of petals and add it on top of the larger layer then move on tl the smaller petals
