I have been wanting to try these FOREVER! I finally got around to it this morning. I used a velvet which was *very* forgiving when it comes to seeing the seams and such. I added an organza flower (almost first attempt at this) I think with some tweaking of the pattern I can make them a little better and faster. They did turn out quite a bit smaller than I anticipated so I think I will probably blow up the pattern for next time.
