I just made this table runner for Christmas and I love the flowers I used as accents. They are done on organza and water soluble stabilizer, then I cut them out using a stencil cutter to make a nice finished edge. After I washed out the stabilizer, they curled naturally as they dried. I wish I had more flower designs like this one. It's 3 parts and the flower veins are in metallic thread.

Did you make the flowers or was it a fabric with embroidered flowers?  Either way - just beautiful!  I would be scared to put something so pretty and white on our table!  Smiley

That's beautiful!  Are the flowers tacked down by hand?

I made the flowers on my embroidery machine and I did sew them on by hand. The leaves I sewed on with my sewing machine.

That is really lovely. Was the embroidered flower pattern designed to be freestanding or to be done on organza?
