Ric Rac Flower

Hello! So sorry for the delay in posting, but I'm on my Honeymoon!!! =) We're on a road trip so I've been doing a lot of crafting in the car.

I followed CINO's awesome tutorial to make a Ric Rac Flower!

I thought trying out a Ric Rac Flower would be the perfect car project. I grabbed the ric rac I had and some felt (remembering what I initially saw in the tutorial.)

As I reread the tutorial I saw that she used 3/4inch ric rac. I had 1/2 inch and while it worked, I can definitely see how wider ric rac would be way easier. next time!

There's no center yet (I forgot to bring a button with me..... or maybe I'll just sew some beads in the center?)

And then there's the back. I said to myself before starting this "Now don't pull too tight on your first circle of sewing or it will curl up and not be flat!" Did I listen? NO.

The edges curled up, but it's still cute! I used a water bottle to fashion the felt circle. yay road trip!

Can you guess where we are?????
