Chain Stitch Flowers

Last post I showed you how to make a flower out of a simple chain stitch.  This post I'll show you a few ways to use your flower once you make it.
The above flower is used as a "clip" of sorts to hold a scarf together....below you'll see how you can wear it by itself as a "corsage" of sorts.
Use the flower on a headband (or two)
Use it as a big button on  a homemade bag
Other ideas for using them would be:
  • to embellish a gift
  • glue one on a hair clip or barrette
  • embellish a homemade greeting card with
  • etc. etc. - possibilities are endless!
For a picture tutorial on making these simple flowers see the previous post.
