Using a few tools and simple patterns, students create easily assembled flowers to trim their hats. Fused fabrics preclude messy and discoloring liquid fabric stiffeners. The ultimate difference lay in fabric choices and creative use of materials to make attractive flower centers. Rather than faithful botanical replicas, this course tends to lean toward the quirky and fanciful, a fun homage to the flower!
