Chiffon Flowers

Chiffon flowers are great items to add as a flower in the hair, added to a dress as a strap (about 6 make a single strap) or as a brooch.

  • Cut out circles of chiffon and fold into quarters.
  • Start with four sewn together into a base, then add another folded up circle layoured until you get the volume you want.
  • You may want to decrease the size of the circles are to get to the top layer or add beads in the centre for 'pollen'.
