My first twisted flowers

This is done with a long strip of fabric (here I used hem binding) twisted it and sewed  to a background fabric.  It really is a flower.  Would look good on a floppy hat.  I do need to practice and get better looking flowers, so I will twist away.  I am learning this technique and other embellishments  on
 www. craftsy.com.  They have some great classes.

Hello from Texas!!! I followed over from a comment you left on my blog post! I love collecting postcards, too! Although my collection is of every postcard ever sent to me. And I have a collection of letters written during the 1940's and another collection from the late 1800's and even a couple from 17 something. I should do a blog post on them!
Thank you for your nice comment!

I had a look at the link. I am going to try making the twisted flower too.

Haven't seen you for a while. What with EC gone, it's not easy to find you but I will keep your blog url. :)
