I'm currently building a really pretty headpiece for my friend Kayla's wedding day and needed to create a flower from satin. Here's how I made the petals and how you can too!
1) It singes the fabric, sealing and smoothing the rough edge and keeping it from ever unravelling.
2) If you do this with the shiny side up, you can use the flame to gently curl the petal as it would be in nature.*
*This takes practice!
Above is how I did it. Stay tuned to see the outcome of the headpiece.
UPDATE: Here's the finished product!
