Batiks serve as the perfect fabrics for making these little flowers since they are tightly woven and quite colorful.
Once you have completed the free motion stitching on each of the circles, remove the Solvy from you hoop. Clip around each flower, leaving all the loose extended threads in place.
Circles Clipped from Solvy
Place each flower circle on a terry towel and spray with water to remove the Solvy. Spraying rather than soaking works well here because some of the melted Solvy remains in the fabric, adding a little stiffness to the bubbly texture.
When you circles are semidry, center the small circles on top of the large circles. If you have used an assortment of colors, you may like to mix and match until you are pleased with the results.
Apply beads or buttons to embellish the flower centers. I used “tye dye” glass beads.
Tye Dye Beads
Take each flower and scrunch it into a little ball. Gently open the ball and shape it back into a flower.
Allow to dry completely, and your flowers will be ready to add colorful embellishment wherever you place them.
