Fun and Flowers!

Good Evening Everybody!

I promise this is my last post for the day!  LOL!   I received several comments and quite a few emails asking about the flowers for Fiona's Lace Mini.  I thought everyone had seen these flowers before and didn't want to share something you had seen before.  Well, my apologies to ya!  Here you go...A video on Fiona's Flowers....:)




Thank You all again for your kind comments on Fiona's Lace Mini!

Have an awesome night y'all!

  2. I was on the edge of my seat watching you melt the edges of those petals..."don't burn your thumb, Don't burn your thumb" LOL.

    Totally amazed that you hand cut the posy petals, totally wowed by the final product. I had never seen this before. Thank you...hope you got a good night's sleep (do you ever take melatonin? It really helps!) Hope you don't have an early flight out. Have fun at Market.

  4. I've seen this technique done before but enjoyed your version. Mine never turn out quite that pretty, I think I'm over burning them, I'll have to try it again because it's been awile since I've made any. I hope you got some sleep!

  5. Gosh, you make me nervous~I would have burned my hands....lol and I thought you were going to put your hand right into that glue gun. When I make these flowers I use a tea light candle. I was biting my nails thru the whole video...lol What is Market? Have a great time!

  8. Oh no, I thought my Don was the only one who eats late! That's not good for you! Lovely flowers. I have to get one of these lighter things. Every time I get a lighter, Don needs it! lol

  10. Wow! Thank you for staying up late to make this video! This was a new technique for me too! How do you not burn your fingers, even just a little bit?! LOL what a gorgeous flower? Off to Wally-mart to buy fabric! Have fun at Market!

  11. HOLEY MOLEY, Jimbo! I hadn't seen the blazing, melt the fabric before. I'm with all the others...how in the world do you do it without burning yourself?!?!?!

    The flower is beautiful...and hand cut, too.

    Travel safe my friend!!

  14. I'm so glad you did a video on how to make these little flowers. I've seen other people with them but really did not know how to make them. The poly-satin is a beautiful choice--soft, shimmery, and very like a real petal. Thanks so much.

  15. thanks, great tips. so, is the f.b.i. looking for you since we know that you have no fingerprints? :)

  16. Very nice. Thanks so much. Why didn't that burn your fingers?

    ReplyDelete
  17. How did you not burn your fingers? Shouldn't you hold those shapes with a tweezer or something? Scary!

  18. I somehow missed this video, but so glad that I finally ran across it. I had searched for this technique but nobody does it quite like you. Most of the videos use a heat gun. I like the lighter method much better. However, I am not as brave as you, I plan to use tweezers to hold the material while I apply the flame to them. Must be a guy thing huh??????? Great technique and thanks for doing this video for us. Your the best Jimbo.
