This is absolutely beautiful. Are the yellow flowers raw edge applique? Also, what did you make those beautiful blue ones from? Just amazing, thanks for sharing

Both the yellow and blue flowers are fabric flowers from I simply attached them in their centers with beads or French knots. You can take apart high quality flowers from the crafts store and use those petals too. Try it, you'll like it!

Thanks, I'll give that a go. Also, I have some angelina fibres that I think might look really pretty.
