    :-D :-D :-D :-D I made this tonight and I thought it turned out pretty nice. This is also the very first time I covered a button too. This is nice because you can add a pinback and put it on purse or pin it on a jacket or dress or what ever tickles your fancy. I was just playing around wiht some scraps. Enjoy, Huggies, Fay....P.S Sorry the picture isn't very good at all.

    I like it, you could possibly attach it to a hair clip as well. Or a hat. :thumbup:

    I like it. I can see in my minds' eye a spring hat with several of those cuddled together and in the same color family as a dress worn with it. And it would be delightful for small girls on Easter dress days and even flower girls at weddings.

    Wanna tell us how you made this? Have some short cuts?

    The tutorial for the flower is right here, http://sewritzytitzy.blogspot.com/2008/ ... orial.html

    Yes you can put it on a hair band or a clip or put on a pinback and pin it on any thing you like. You could even wrap a Mother's Day gift and attach it to the gift. Pretty clever. After you make the flower you make a small circle out of craft Shoot ,,, my forgetter is working over time as I can't remember what the stuff is called, but any way the tute explains about making a small circle to put on the back. Have a great evening, huggies, Fay

    Your flower is lovely....you could also use a yo-yo for the centre (that's how I do mine). I am planning on making one for my step-son's fiance (in her football team colours)...she's a very girly girl and loves flowers.
