Okay, well it wouldn't have taken two hours if I hadn't gotten so distracted by the NCIS marathon on TV. But anyway, here is my latest project, made with some of the fabric that I kept from the motherload. I think it is so pretty, and the great thing is that the piece of fabric was like a yard and a half long, so I can make several more.

Alas, I digress. Back to the original subject. Behold, my current pride and joy:

I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I started this thing. I just started cutting petals and ended up with around 30 of them. Then I just sewed them all onto a piece of felt and glued the beads on the center.

So, what do you think?

I will happily do personal swaps for beads, buttons, and fat quarters!

Great job! I like the fabric. Seems like it is cotton or something. I wonder whether the edges could be singed, or it will be set on fire? Do you plan to use it as a hair flower or a brooch?

Unfortunately, this fabric definitely cannot be singed. I am considering fray checking the edges, but I kind of like the frayed look, so I am not sure.
As of right now, I haven't put anything on the back, but I plan on putting both a pin and an alligator clip on it so that it can be worn either way.

I will happily do personal swaps for beads, buttons, and fat quarters!
