How to sew a tack?
First we need to cut a blank for tacking from the fabric of the primary color. In this case it is a circle. Adjust the diameter of future crafts for yourself.
Next, we make two types of pieces of scrap. The first - from small circles. It is necessary to cut out of the rags circles of the same size. Bend them exactly in half and iron. Then we carry out the bend of the corners inwards and iron again. We make several such blanks.
At the next stage we make the scraps of the second type. These blanks will be made from rectangles. Fold the corners inward and iron. Look at the photo to not get confused.
The main part of the tack of the rags divide by 8 conditional triangles. We spread the first layer. The triangles must fit the size at the base and eventually fill the circle.
Then we spread and sew another layer of shreds on the future tack.Please note that these are blanks from circles. We put them in two to make the base sharpened.
We continue to alternate the layers about a centimeter (you can indent more or less - to your taste). Sew each layer, alternate blanks.
The last are triangles. All protruding edges need to be cut. It's okay if it comes out not too beautiful - the edging will hide everything, the tack from the rags will look extremely neat.
The second side of the tack can be sewn again from the rags, but you can leave the whole. Sew the two sides of the tack together and complete the accessory with braid. The easiest way to sew edging on a typewriter, but you can do it yourself.
If the tack seems too thin to you, make an additional inner layer of fabric (or even a double layer). Try to combine contrasting colors and shades in one color range of different brightness - it all looks very beautiful. And one more important point: it is better not to take low-quality synthetics on patches for tacking, since such fabrics melt from contact with hot objects.
