Flower Looms: Adding a Simple Stem to Flowers
Adding a stem to your flowers is very simple.
|Take an ordinary sewing needle and a doubled length of thread. Fasten it to the back of your bloom by making a couple of stitches.|
|Tightly stitch over a chenille stick (pipe cleaner) or a piece of wire.|
|Make another couple of stitches to fasten off the thread and trim.|
Fold over the top of the chenille stick and twist together.
If your flower is a little heavy you can twist two chenille sticks together and use them as one.
