I wore it last night to my delightful book group meeting which was filled with wine, good food and engaging conversations.
Here are the directions for the fabric flower on my shoulder:
cut five 4" squares of fabric
fold wrong sides together and baste along two of the edges
pull the basting stitches tightly together to form five curved petals
Stitch the five petals onto a firm backing fabric scrap.
Add embellishment and sew to garment or add a pin back.

And my sewing machine is back in full working order. Last month I packed it up for the local neighborhood sewing group meeting and proceeded to lose the bobbin cover in transit. I had to figure a way to Tim Gunn it (Make it work, people...) so here's my solution.
This past week the part came in and we're all tidy once again.....and I'll be super careful next time I transport my baby anywhere.
