I made the flower from a vintage trim I received in a swap because it matched the yarn perfectly. I am sure you could use some rick rack or lace for the same thing. Just hand sew some basting stitches along the length of the bottom of the trim you decide to use. Pull it up and distribute gathers evenly. Sew a tack stitch in the middle when you get the desired look. I used a vintage button as the center of mine, but a cute covered button or even hand sewn beads would look good for this I think.
These were made to fit the Dixie coffee cups available in grocery stores. I have received a lot of compliments on mine, so I think they would make an excellent gift for any coffee lover. They work up very nice and quick!
Have a great day ya'll!
