Cheesecloth anyone?

I know what cheesecloth is and it is to use cheese.  Did you say duh? I know, I did too!  Ok, so I saw this talented lady on YouTube making shaby chic flowers.  At first glance it looked easy so I went and bought some cheesecloth and got to work.  First one I made, see ginormous one below without center, turned out ginormous and ugly.  Turns out practice does make perfect and cheesecloth is even harder to work with than tulle – at least when making flowers.  I found myself smelling the cheesecloth (yes I sure did) and wondering how people make cheese out of this unruly material.  After the first flower, I got frustrated and turned my glue gun off.  A few hours later, I was back at it, cutting and fighting with the cheesecloth.  I watched the video again, and found that I cut my squares way to big so instead of eyeballing 2 inches, I actually measured and tada, it came out pretty.  Now, to cut more cheesecloth and make more…..  yes….more!!  I must make more.
