You can find this tutorial in Dollybird vol. 15.  It shows you how to dye fabric and make them into flower corsage.  Quite easy to follow.

I used plain white cotton.  I also tried spraying some starch to stiffen the flowers to make them more 3-d, like the examples shown in the book.  Looking at my flower corsage, I suppose the starch is not enough?

I didn’t have any fabric dye so I used watercolour and Gouache instead.  The colours turned out quite fresh looking.

Will try to make another one again.  This time, will pay more attention on the tonal shades of the petals.  (^_^)

Here is Nanette showing off the flower corsage.
