I have had so much fun making ribbon flowers and fabric flowers for my projects and for my Flower Power class. In fact, I have a Flower Power II class scheduled at Austin's Sewing Center for June 4, from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. Please join me to learn how to make some more difficult flowers for all of your creative embellishments.
