When I was in Utah a little bit ago I went to this cute Quilting shop I visit every time I'm there. They had this Stitched Flower pinned on a dress. They didn't have a pattern to buy so I had to make my own.
I cut a 3 1/2" flower template out of chipboard (you could use cardstock). Cut a piece of fabric(fleece or cotton) big enough for the flower template and sandwich a piece of batting("Warm & Natural Needled Cotton Batting")in between the fabric layers. Using the template cut the fabric flower.
Stitch around the flower with coordinating thread.
Stitch a "gathering" stitch(with this cool tip) down the strip of fabric(1/2" x 20").
Take the gathered fabric strip and stitch regularly into a coil in the middle of the flower.
The frayed coiled fabric strip in the middle.
Add some embellishments in the center of the flower such as buttons & rhinestones. Now its Ready to Wear!
