The concept is not really difficult.  You cut out the flowers and then you sew them onto the tank.  "Oh that's easy!", you say.  At least, that's what I thought.

HA!  I didn't even cut one whole flower from the material when I realized I had really stepped in it.  First off, my flowers had a bunch of leaves with funky edges.  It would take forever to cut the flowers perfectly out.  So I did it imperfectly.  I just cut blocks around the flowers and figured I could fix it later.

I pinned the flowers to my tank and started sewing.  The funky edges of the flowers and leaves made this part extremely difficult.  I ended up hand stitching the difficult edges of the flowers and sewing the easy parts with the sewing machine.  I then cut the excess material from around the stitched edges.

I do want to point out that if you look closely at the collar, you will see where I let some of the flowers and leaves flow off of the tank.  I thought this was kind of different and liked how it looked.
