Now for a little something crafty. I'm participating in a homemade flower embellishment swap. I decided to make ribbon flowers but saw a 50% off sale on seam and hem tape at the fabric store. I can't resist a bargain so decided to try lace hem facing and this is how they turned out.
I used Wrights 2 inch hem facing and each flower is about 1/2 yard in length. I basted along one one side. Then I gathered and tied the thread ends off so it made a circle. I punched 1 inch card stock circles to put on the back to provide a good spot to add adhesive. Then I sewed the button to the front, thru the card on the back, with embroidery floss. The buttons are from La Mode, La Petite, and Blumenthal Lansing. I think these would look really neat as a pin, sewn onto bedroom throw pillows or on a gift or trinket box.
Thanks so much for dropping in! Would love to know what kind of flower embellishments you make so leave a comment!
