This dimensional, no-fray flower is easy and fun to make out of all types of natural fabrics, and looks especially beautiful in light silks. It's a no-sew project completed with basic items - no sewing and no melting, yet you'll love the permanent and dimensional results. This is not a "floppy" flower - I'll show you a simple millinery technique that keeps your flower looking perky.
