Call them buds, bells or stylised berries, these cute fabruc flower buds will not leave you indifferent. Experiment with colour and texture of your fabrics, use them on individual stems or join into larger clusters, combine with larger flowers or use them on their own – the sky is the limit with these flower buds. Personally, I prefer using them as original filler elements in compositions such as boutonnieres or headpieces.
The Video Tutorial demonstrates and explains how to cut, shape and assemble the little buds from scratch using just one tool.
As as stylised flower these buds do not have any recognisable leaves, however you can easily finish them with essential style narrow leaves that are common for most spring bulbs. You will receive access to a separate lesson on this type of leaves within the tutorial.
Alternatively, be creative with your foliage and pick more interestingly shaped leaves to add originality to your pieces.
With this video tutorial you receive access to video instructions from the practising flower artist. Watch the video through the artist’s eyes, follow the instructions and create, create, create!
Here’s what you need for creating the fabric flower buds:
❀ fabric* for the petals (crepe as well as satin fabrics are perfect for this job)
❀ thin silk* or thin rayon backing fabric* for assembly
❀ satin or velvet for the leaves (if making)

For shaping the bells you will only need one tool, the Extra Narrow Japanese Style Tool (or similar out of your box of tools).
