Beautiful Trims

Hello all.

This month I have chosen some beautiful trims to play with and have managed to make some simple yet very beautiful flowers.

I'd love to see your variations on this as the possibilities are endless.

So here's how I created these flowers.

1. Cut a small circle of fabric (I used scraps of felt) approx an inch diameter, I found drawing around the lid of a pop bottle was perfect.

2. Take a length of trim (approx 12"), I have used Ric rak, Small pompom trim and rouched ribbon.
Sarah has a great selection of trims and lace in the shop here.

3.You will need a needle and a thread that co-ordinates. Starting frome the outside of your fabric circle, start a running stitch attaching the bottom of the trim to the outside edge of the circle, continue to work your way to the centre and secure with a few stitches.

4. Add a pretty brad, center or even a fancy pin to finish off your flower.

Here is my completed layout with my flowers attached.

I have use the Sassfrass Crush Papers and stickers to create my page.

Have a lovely day !! xx
