    Great work. My favorite is the 3rd photo down, lower left. What did you use for that center? Gorgeous!

    For the third photo down, the top and lower left flowers have vintage clip-on earrings for centers. After I stitched the layers together, I cut a slit in the middle wide enough for the back side of the clip to fit through. Then I glued the flower to the earring so it would stay put. It can be clipped to a headband, lapel, scarf, whatever you like.
