Fabric Flowers

Posted by Spirited on September 7, 2011 at 6:30 AM Comments comments (0)

I made these Flowers out of rose pattern fabric. I really like them. I like them so much I used the photo for the background on my web pages. I am using them on a few new projects I have started. I have used a few on headpieces. They give a romantic look to the bras and belts. I will post as projects are done.

I will try to remember to post on the craft blog how to make them.

Sewing With Leather and Suede By S. Denise Hoyle

Before making your decision consult the following list outlining the characteristics of various real and synthetic leathers:

** COWHIDE - Whole cowhides are available in large sizes measuring from 20 to 25 square feet. Garments such as coats, pants and jackets can be made from these full hides. Half hides or sides can also be purchased for smaller projects such as hats, handbags or belts. Cowhide comes in heavy and medium weights and offers a wide range of colors and finishes.

** PIGSKIN - Pigskin is a light to medium-weight leather that comes in both sueded and non-sueded finishes and is available in a wide variety of colors. Pigskins are usually small, about 5 to 7 square feet, so they are generally used for smaller items such as handbags, belts or trims.

** LAMBSKIN - Lambskin is similar in texture to cowhide although finer. The average lambskin measures about 6 to 9 square feet and is generally more expensive than cowhide. Also available in many colors, lambskin can be used for a variety of garments such as dresses, skirts, coats, jackets, slippers, handbags and hats.

** SYNTHETIC LEATHER - Usually produced as a medium-weight fabric, synthetic leather is commonly made with a polyurethane face and a knit or woven backing. Available in a wide variety of colors and finishes, it can be used for any garment or craft project in place of real skins.

** SYNTHETIC SUEDE - Synthetic suedes come in a variety of weights and colors and are typically more expensive than synthetic leathers. Lighter weights are commonly used for vests, dresses, skirts, jackets and shirts while the heavier weights are good for pants, jackets and coats.

** SNAKESKIN - Smaller snakeskins are usually more delicate than the larger varieties. The color of snakeskins varies widely and the glossy finish generally comes from a thin layer of varnish or plastic used to help protect the skin. Because snakeskins can be fragile they are used mostly for small items such as belts, handbags and collars.

** SYNTHETIC SNAKESKIN - Similar to synthetic leathers, pseudo snakeskins have a fabric backing which makes them less fragile than real snakeskins.
