1:12 scale "Ivory" thread winder tutorial...sort of.

Hello, I'm here to collect my bad blogger award...and also leave a quick tutorial of sorts.

Using a flower punch, secure the thread behind the "front" of the flower, between two petals, then make a dot mark on the petal as shown in the video. This dot reminds you of where you started a round. I think two rounds is sufficient. Then place the thread over three petals, with the thread being brought back to come up between the first and second petal where you started, then repeat, repeat until you're finished. Secure the thread at the back with a bit of glue, trim when dry, and then snip the petals. I used an exacto knife to do it.

Hope the video makes this tutorial clearer. It's really just to show how to make the pattern 😃

Bye... away now with my award 😃
