How to make a net flower (easy)

You will need
4 pieces of stiff net fabric 5 1/2 in x 5 1/2 in
4 pieces of stiff net fabric 5 x 5 in
Tape measure or ruler
2 Sewing needles
Sewing cotton


No 2 No 3

No 4
N0 5
N0 6
No 7Take one of your larger squares and fold in half corner to corner making a triangle shape and then fold again (picture2)
Thread needle with a long piece of thread making sure that its double and matching the colour of your fabric,run small running stitch along open edges (picture3)

Draw up thread ( picture 4) now do the same to the 3 remaining larger square making sure you do all this on the same thread, your flower should be looking like picture 5, 6, and ending looking like no 7 with all petals forming a circle making sure your centre is flat,join up the circle and secure stitches, cut cotton of.
Thread your second needle with thread the same as you did with first needle and do the same with 4 remaining smaller squares,

You should now have 2 circle's of petals, place them one on top of the other making sure they are placed looking like picture No 8 , secure them both together by stitching through centre,decorate your centre with beads or a button, stitch a hair come to back like picture No 10

No 8

No 9

No 10
You now have a lovely large flower hair comb, I use these flowers for decorating all sorts of things, you can reduce the size by cutting squares smaller as long as they are square, you can also do more petals on a single flower, try it now you have the basic idea
