    i really inspired. I am so glad to found all the tutorial here. I already get my butt up and started making my own flowers! :D Adding my entry to FLower Power Contest!

  2. Linda Barrett says:

    These designs remind me of a craft I did as a little girl. It was winding wool around many pegs sticking up on a circular disc. When all the petals were ready, you stitched around the center of the flower to hold the whole flower in shape and then released from the pegs. I made thousands of these!

  3. Kris says:

    I love all the bright colors of the flower on the gardenparty handbag. I made a purse with some of that line. I could make a cute flower with my scraps.
