Thank you, coming from you means a lot, Peggy. The flower, is firstly bonded on with heat and bond then machine stitched with satin stitch. then the top 'flower' is two pieces bonded together, then satin stitched around the petals. then where the flower centre is it is machine stitched on to anchor it. I can see how you would think I used wire, but no. To get the 3D look I had to pinch it and hope it stayed there long enough to get the pic, took a few goes to get it right.
