Thats so pretty! I never thought about making present tops with fabric, I've always used magazines and stuff.
Thanks! I tend to go for the fabric for some reason... at least the 2 times I've made something for this purpose.
I've used buttons for flower centers, but never thought about french knots. This turned out very pretty, it looks like little individual seeds in the center. Like the color and the frayed effect, too.
When I started this last-minute endeavor it was going to be a felt daisy with a button center, but it ended up this way instead.
That's beautiful! It would make a great headband!
Thank you! I used a paper clip run through the threads in the back and I bet a bobby pin would work, too. It's with the gift recipient now and she can do whatever she wants with it!
So many evil french knots, making me dizzy.....
Yeah, I'm not convinced I'm a devoted fan. I LOVE how they look and I can finally do them most of the time, but they certainly aren't even and I can't watch TV while doing them, that's for sure.
