A natural progression from Fabric Effects in Sugar: First Steps and Basic Skills, re-issued in 2013, this book is solely focused on how to make a range of simple fabric effect flowers and a range of leaves and buds. All of these flowers offer a simple alternative to making the usual sugar flowers, which often take a long time to construct. These techniques are usually quicker but equally attractive.

The flowers featured include: the rolled rose, the pleated rose, a hybrid half rolled and half pleated rose, the cabachon rose, rose buds, simple blossom, textured and double sided blossom, patterned paste blossom, rosette flower, textured fantasy flower, convex flower, concave flower and poinsettia and mistletoe.

  •  Fantasy inspired flowers are currently hugely popular
