Fold in half again
Next fold down one flap
And the same on the other flap
Thread your needle and pass through all sections of your fabric at the base of the petal
. Do the same with each circle and add to your thread. When they are all threaded take your 2 cotton ends and pull all the petals together and tie a knot.
Sew a button into the center. I usually put glue on the button base also to keep in place securely.
And glue a circle of fabric on the reverse to hide all the raw edges.
And there you have it. A perfect embellishment for your new bag!
This is the next bag in my collection and can be found for sale on Folksy.
As you know i also make them with a brooch back sewn on the reverse. Inspired by Carolee Crafts black and white fabric last week i went out and purchased some for myself. Looks great as a brooch.
And on Folksy this week i was asked if i could put a flower on a hair clip or barrette as i have found out that they are called.
