Welcome to my first tutorial! I am a bit embarrased that it is something so simple, but a few people asked how I did the flowers for the lamp shade so I am happy to show you!
There are a ton of tutorials out there for different types of flowers but I don't remember seeing one on this one..could be wrong though!
First let me just point something out....THAT IS ME...USING A SEWING MACHINE!! Seriously my mom thought she would never see the day!
Anyway...You start out by cutting strips of fabric. The width on mine were 2 inches and the length 22 inches. You can do them longer, wider, shorter and skinnier. It just depends on the size of flower you want.
Then all you do is a running stitch on your machine. I used the largest stitch my machine would do...makes it easier to gather.
