Sew simple to make a flower from a small scrap of fabric, using the free downloadable PDF pattern and instructions.
This is an easy and forgiving beginning project for practicing the running stitch and gathering. And a quick project if you're already a stitcher. Flowers can be rustic and tattered or elegant and luxurious, depending on your materials. I love this project for using treasured bits of ribbon and lace.
Finished flowers can be made into brooches or barrettes or attached to headbands or other projects. They're lovely as a finishing touch on the Lavender Sachets, too.
