Colorful quilted flowers add a bit of whimsy to a tote, or form them into a bouquet.
A bold flower dresses up a lapel.
Cut up a bunch of petal shapes from some fabric and batting.

6. For another look, find a printed fabric that has shapes that look like petals. Cut out the shapes and complete the flower as above.


Cut out the individual motifs from a great printed fabric.


Some beads and metallic thread transform the cotton fabric that I used for the jacket's lining into a glitzy accessory for this fun jacket made with ribbon.

This is Muskan Sanj and by profession I am a Makeup artist. I am basically from Chennai and I live here with my parents. I've never been into any relationship before.
Well, I admit it I am a little old-fashioned when it comes to my dating style. I like to go for drinks and dinner on the first date. But it's all part of what makes me a gentlewoman. I am looking for someone who is always up for life's adventures but doesn’t mind staying in and watching a movie when the weather calls for it. And my dream is to be one top Chennai female escorts.
Other than that, I try to spend as much time with my family and close friends, I go to the beach a lot, sometimes even by myself. The world is overwhelming a lot of times and I find myself to be an anxious person. I get stressed out and overwhelmed so I find it therapeutic to be at the beach.
I believe in gender equality and want my men to believe in the same. Men and women are different for a good reason because we can complement each other, in a working or personal relationship. And this should not affect my Chennai female escorts job.
I am seeking someone who loves adventures as I do. Someone who is not afraid of taking risks and opportunities that comes in a way. I want my first date to be like sitting at a home watching a beautiful movie with the glass of vodka would be so romantic. I am looking for a person who can be in a long term relationship with me as I am into Chennai female escorts.
I want someone who is courageous, funny, handsome, hot and someone who knows how to make me feel special. If you want to date a beautiful girl like me then ping me.
As a Chennai female escorts can make you feel comfortable and relaxed when you meet me. Read on to know more.
I may not have a pretty face like most of you desire, but blessed with sexy figure, long legs with a beautiful asset and fabulous as a lover. I start my love process with a sizzling sexy dance and then coming into your arms so that you can kiss, explore and play with my body in your own way. I am an open person and can make any person comfortable through my amiable nature. With me, there more would be feeling of going out with a friend than a paid Chennai female escorts.
I love it when you treat me as your Chennai female escorts, put your hands on my shoulder even share your close feelings without any hesitation. I do not like pub culture as I am not comfortable with drinking. But if you insist, I can join you there, however I seldom cross my limits while drinking. I would love to please you in best possible way I can!

Julibee writes: I'm thinking that adding a little wire (a very fine one, or maybe wire florists use) under the satin stitch edge would help to shapre the petals.

Also thinking that instead of buttons in the centre you could use a cluster of beadsto make them look more like the stamens.

You could also use this technique to make leaves! I see a beautiful bouquet in my future....

MaryRay writes: Thanks for your comments. Let me answer your questions.
For sure you could sew the petals first and then cut them out. However, I cut out the shapes first so I can make the batting a little smaller. Then it won't show along the edges. On the other hand, the satin stitching binds the outer edges and -- if the batting is not too thick -- it will be covered with this step. How did I attach them? I just hand stitched them in place. But, gluing on or sewing on a pin back is also a good idea!

lauraflora writes: These are really nice, and a great way to use up small pieces of special fabric, making something unique in design with many possible applications. I will try some of these for a new project - maybe on a 3 d wall hanging, or to decorate a jacket or purse.

queenopearls writes: Beautiful Mary Ray! The texture and artistic qualities are wonderful. Many MANY possibilities, so great of you to share.
Question: Any reason why you don't/can't create the leaves and then cut them out?
