    This is a table topper I just finished for my mom for her birthday party tomorrow. Man it was a lot of work. Have never done the scalloped inter edge. Learned something new.

    I like the scallops, would you do it again? This is very cute and I am sure she will love using it.

    Maybe but I would change some stuff. It was a learning experience. The outside border is like a picture frame. Thanks for all the nice comments.

    I have been wanting to make that topper. Did you use wool for the pumkins and the sunflowers? I love your outside border and the scallop turned out very well.

    No I couldn't afford the wool. Way too expensive. I used felt. I got it from a friend that has a embroidery & letterjacket company. It's a little nicer than the usual at Walmart. It's what they use to embroidery the letters & patches on football & award jackets.
