This flower is made from scraps of fabrics, laces and ribbon. A pin back and it is ready to wear or place on a pillow or drapery for that whimsical touch.
One of my fabric and paper greeting cards with a rolled fabric flower for embellishment. Lots of glitter makes it sparkle. A couple of suede leaves mimic the printed fabric leaves.
This time the flower is the fabric print and I have sewn it into an envelope with a nice coordinating wool felt lining. Notice the fun leaf stitching on the vintage seam binding edge?
Here is the finished fabric envelope with some lace, ribbon, a button and thread and a finishing touch of suede leaves.
Each of these little gifts are easy to make and take very little time. You could make some and have them handy for those "surprise" gifts we always need to have on hand for extra people or extra occasions. I would always rather over-give than under-give...kind of like being under-dressed rather than over-dressed.
Now that the weather is cooler and we are spending a little more time indoors it is nice to have some precious time to sew or create and feel the accomplishment of finishing something.
Happy creating this week.
