I have been wanting to try to make an organza flower for a week or so and finally bought the material on Saturday and made this on Sunday. I was hoping it would be brooch-size but it turned out to be 15cm in diameter! I think it will have to be either worn on the head (a fascinator?) or sewn onto a bag. I found a piece of Friendly Plastic that I had "oozed" with Angelina fibres which seemed to match it perfectly. DH kindly made holes in it and I sewed it in place. The colour doesn't come out too well in the photo but the organza is a beautiful shimmery deep burgundy. Fun to make but patience required!
