Three more lovely 3D flowers just in time for spring! Perfect for Mother's Day, Easter, birthdays or just "I'm thinking of you" days. These designs are very easy to make, and addictive...you can't make just one, you'll want a whole bouquet!
The flower parts and leaves are stitched in the hoop, then cut out and assembled by hand. Make a stunning corsage for a special someone by adding bits of trim, beading, ribbon and charms. Or make a simply beautiful flower brooch by sewing a brooch pin to the back of a single bloom. These flowers can be used in many other fun projects such as frames, greeting cards, scrapbook pages, guest towels, curtains, pillows and covered boxes.
Silk organza and cotton organdy are the suggested fabrics for these and all other 3D flower designs. These fabrics hold the stitching well; do not whisker badly (like polyester organzas) and lend a beautiful crisp yet soft touch to the blooms. No stabilizer is required for these designs when using these fabrics.
Complete directions are included as well as the design photos and illustration photos. The directions are saved as a Word document and as a Text Only document. Please print out and read all directions before beginning. All the designs fit in a 4x4 hoop.
