He he, just whipped this up this evening after a particularly long day at work. I often daydream of what I'm going to make on the sewing machine when I get home.







Okay, enough with all the pics... sorry Tongue

Do you think the flowers look okay with all the frayed edges or does it just look sloppy? Should I use some sort of interfacing on them if I do this project again?

My goodness this is so cute! I love the frayed edges, they add a lot of character to the piece.

I love the colors and the simple shapes -- I also love frayed applique, have done several things like that, and they just get better with age.  I say leave it, and do more like that!  Smiley

This looks really cute!  The frayed edges look cute too.  I'd love to do some of these on a piece of felt for a wall hanging  Cheesy

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.

So why buy what you can craft?  Smiley

Love it!

Looks great on you and the colours go really well together - and buttons are always good Smiley

I think the frayed edges suit the material that the flowers have been made out of, so go with it!

I love it, the colours, the buttens, the frayed edges... and I know those daydreams, but my problem is (like the dreams I have at night) I forget about them too quickly Cheesy

Beautiful! I love it Smiley What would you call that? It's not quite a scarf... When it's down it's almost like a cowl-neck sweater without the sweater...??

Lol, I call it a neckwarmer but it could be a "cowl" too. Smiley

This is adorable and totally practical considering we are having 40 mph wind gusts where I live today!
I love the color combination and the fraying edges around the flowers.
Great job!
