I haven't attempted my own fabric flowers...until now. I had to sew one since I couldn't find a flower this color. I really love it. It's "flappy" and has a very boutique feel to it. I like how some of my biggest creative moments are out of necessity. I can tell I've come a long way because now I just think, "There's got to be a way to make this!" I hope you like the hat Kari...it's on it's way.
