To see how I made the fabric flower seen in Christine Jonson 426 top click the above link and view as either a slideshow or as individual photos.

At least that's how it should go. However, this was a Yahoo! photo sharing site and when they said I had to move to Flickr and they'd transfer the photos I though, okay, I'll move. What they didn't say was that they couldn't update the links to Flickr, so .................

Helen - that's a useful technique. I can see it could be elaborated on in lots of ways. Thanks.

Hi, Helen: Thanks for sharing your photos and technique. This may sound funny, but I think your flower would also look attractive with the gathered edge showing instead of tucked in. I think it would make your flower appear extra-frilly. I think it would work if you stitch the coil in place a little above the gathered edge, so that the gathered section became part of the design. Just an idea "sprouted" from one who's recently grown to love embellishing with all forms of fabric/ribbon flowers. Amy

Amy, what a great idea and I think you're right, it would give a very different, frilly camelia kind of look.

Asenka, I've updated the link. Thanks for letting me know. Happened when I had to change from Yahoo to Flickr, wonder what else has gone .....

Oh dear, the slideshow only has two frames and they don't seem to be associated with this fabric flower. I do have a book on making fabric flowers and I'll look there for instructions, thanks for the inspiration.
