I promise this will be the last one---I used a lace motif for the back petals and then 3 different sized calico ones on top of that.
I have glued the centre coil again but I used a finer fabric this time which was a big improvement.
I hate letting a technique get the better of me so I just persisted until it worked.
I cut out 2 green leaves from felt fabric and have just placed them under the flower for effect.
Here is the flower without the leaves--What do you think?
Which one looks the best?
