4.0 out of 5 stars Stunning flowers!, 15 Sep 2012

This review is from: Handmade Fabric Flowers (Paperback)
This book is truly gorgeous. The flowers are stunning, the photography is beautiful and I desperately want to make every flower in the book! But here's the downside and the reason I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5 - the flower iron. It would appear to be one of the hardest pieces of craft equipment to obtain in the UK. The recommendation in the book is for an online company in the USA, and the price of a flower iron is pretty high. Then you need various different shaped tools, all extras. If I had known before ordering that an expensive, hard to obtain iron was required, I possibly wouldn't have purchased the book. Having said that, there are a couple of interesting techniques in the book about making beaded centres for flowers, so I may make those for other vintage fabric flowers that I already make.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Book, 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Handmade Fabric Flowers (Paperback)
It's a stunning book with lots of very clear instructions. The only downside is the fact that you need to have a "flower iron" (as used in millinery) in order to do most of these flowers. The Flower Iron is a very expensive piece of equipment +/- 100 and I have yet to find a cheaper option.
