I am planning on making my own flower sash, and I made this flower as a trial by following some tutorials on youtube. I am surprised how well it came out, and how easy it was to make. Anyone else DIY a flower sash?

@shebang: That’s pretty, what’s the fabric? how did you get the petal edges to not unravel?

So well done! Looks amazing! I’ve been thinking of trying something like this, but I’m generally really careless and bad at DIY stuff. Even when I try hard, it STILL looks careless. 😛

Love it!!!! And I love the flowers on there. That’s exactly what I want for my hair accessory. I didn’t even think of DIYing my hair accessory. This is a splendid idea I’m definitely going to have to try! Is the satin easy to find? (fabric store I’m assuming)

There are a bunch of youtube videos online for making satin flowers. I can’t find the exact youtube video I used, but this one is similar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwpb2r1ZTck
To get the petals to have that cup-like shape, and to prevent the edges from fraying, I used a candle to slightly melt the edges.
For fabric, I just used standard pink satin. I think you have to use a synthetic fabric to get the edges to melt.

May I ask how much the entire project cost? The ones I see on etsy are super expensive, but sometimes going DIY for such a small project isn’t always worth it because you have to buy certain quantities of materials that don’t come in smaller quantities.

It’s not expensive. I think I spent $5 on materials and could make at least 5 more flowers. Satin is probably $10 a yard, then you need to spend money on feathers or buttons. Maybe the Etsy sellers are using more expensive materials? It took me an hour to make that flower.
Here’s another pic to show the size.
