In my first post on manipulated fabrics, I showed you how to add tucks to rectangular or square pieces of fabric and to twist them for a fun wavy effect. The next thing I wanted to try was to add twisted tucks to a round piece of fabric in order to get a sort of spiraling out look.
1. Mark and cut out a circle from your fabric. Mine is about 6 inches in diameter. It doesn't have to be perfectly round, however, and a few of the other ones I made were oblongs.
2. Cut a hole out of the larger circle. It can be dead-center or offset like mine. Make it about 1 1/2 to 2 inches across.
3. Follow the instructions from part one for adding tucks running from the inner circle to the outer edge.
part one for more details about this. I added beads to each tuck, and clipped the batting to just under the edge of the silk fabric.
