singe the fabric :: project idea

did you know that if you singe the edges of a silky fabric, the fabric won't fray and it will curl up a bit?   i tried this technique on some fabric circles the other day and then layered them to create cute flower pins.   i just quickly ran a lighter flame around the edge.   so simple!   you must give it a try.   think of the things you could make... broaches, hair pieces, necklaces, etc.   by the way, don't you think "broach" is the ugliest name for something so pretty?
