This funky flower is reminiscent of those great 70’s posters! It is actually created in the round, making all the petals at once, so it is really a flat circle. Then the border is put on to create the look of the petals. Use this flower as an applique on a hat, purse, jacket or other item. Attach it to a pin or hair clip or headband. There are so many possibilities!
