I have fabric for about 5 dress for my DD. However I do not want them all to look the same. I thought about making 2 pillow case dresses but on one of them I was going to put a satin flower. I have seen vids on youtube, but has anyone actually made one? How hard were they? did you want to pull your hair out?

from the vids I have seen they look easy enough, but I would like to hear from someone who has actually made one. Of course the person on the vid makes it look easy they have done it a lot....

They are super easy & pretty forgiving! I sell a lot of them. Just make sure you're not holding the material too close to the flame otherwise it will catch on fire. Keep a glass of water close by just in case!

These are just concentric circles cut, singed, & stacked.

To get this flower shape, I cut circles, but then cut slits in the circles. The petals should form themselves when you singe the circle.

Wow! Those look awesome. Thank you! About how many layers would you say the last flower is?

My guess is 7-8 layers. I like fuller looking flowers. Most of the time I make more petals than I actually use. I just start stacking until I find a shape I like.

I love making those!  You just have to experiment a little with how close to hold the fabric to the flame. Some are really sensitive and curl up right away (like tulle) and others don't do much.
