BUT......I noticed a comment on my Scarf It Up FB page and responded. A few more interactions, and this person sent me her phone number, wanting more info about my upcycle flower brooches. I called her, and her story is awesome! I am currently making some for her in a variety of colors. In the process, I have discovered a more effective way to make them to produce a fluffy, fuller flower. So that is all good!
These are three of the latest, the teal and wine ones are created using this new method.
