I'm back, Summer illness does take its toll on me but now I'm better. I've made this several years ago but it is still in my possession with my Christmas Crafts. I found these two very rich looking stretch velour to make this project and I think it looks better than it would have in calico fabrics. They both are stretchy fabrics which in this project it was easy to work with. Each of the petals are stitches with a very fat batting and slit is made on the back to turn them right sides out and then machine stitched down the center. They are applied on a round flat pillow and the pom poms were added.
