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.
