Comments

  1. Cute, Simple, Easy, Quick. Can be done in any color palette. If one isn’t familiar with the stitches, a little research will solve that. Both internet and local libraries are good sources.

  2. its okay, a little plain.

  3. good idea but feel instructions would be a little better if you would include simple how to make for each of the stitches used in making the flower.
