2013 Artisan Entry Blog Hop: Day 9

Well, I saved the best for last.  I have known since February that I'd put in for the contest...and somehow the 3D items came first to me.  My ultimate favorite project will be tomorrow.
I know wreaths are all the rage this year.  So I figured I'd do a wreath with an assortment of flowers on them.  I tore the fabric, so each strip has a worn edge, then I dyed white bakers twine Calypso Coral and stitched it along the edge.  I completely loved the effect that had.  I went through and tried to find all the tutorials I could on paper flowers and then picked my favorites.  I think the most time consuming part of this project was the stitchings. The rest of it went pretty quick.
