Fabric flower power

Hello again, Scruffybadger here & big thanks to Lore, a contributor for Crafty Christmas Club in this post for motivating & inspiring me to make a silk/ organza flower.

I used two shades of organza & crimson silk. The central "moustache" is made from embroidery silk. As I was in a hurry I used an old pink button instead of beads in the very centre. I stitched some petersham to the back to then secure a brooch pin to.

I couldn't wait for Christmas though & have already given it as a present for someone as a thank you gift! ...and it was very much appreciated... :-)

Can I just encourage others to try it - it's very simple & extremely satisfying. I'm going to be making more of these beauties, experimenting with other fabrics as well.

  1. YAY! I love it. I havent done it yet with the fringe but it really adds another dimension to it.
    Well done.

    I guarantee you will make plenty more - its such an instant gratification project!
