I was wondering if any of you have any suggestions for using up all my scraps and corners of left-over sinamay? It doesn't necessarily have to be for millinery!! I just can't bear to throw any of it away!
Yes all those corner pieces left after making brims! Never throw away. In Bow lesson I teach how to use to make bows and in Hand crafted flowers to use them to make a lily. Plus the patchwork brims are all about using scraps. ....But I did have too much at one stage & donated to local kindergarten for craft fun.
I think I have the bows and flower lessons, I will check those out. And patchwork brims sound very interesting!
Beautiful Flowers n really Beautiful Idea.
Thank you for sharing.
Hi I do not throw anything away. I mostly use those to make rolled edge leaves.I love those yellow flowers, how did you seal them?
Holding the base, I press an iron onto them and pull them out so they stretch a little and that seems to be enough to stop them fraying :-) Turn the steam off though so you don't scald your fingers!!
