I've been playing around with the Bouquet Boutique floral dies from Tonic Studios. This time, I have used some slub silk, or raw silk as it is otherwise known. I stiffened the silk before cutting by applying a coat of matt Mod Podge and letting it dry. It seemed to work fine. I believe they do make a fabric stiffener. I may need to investigate that! The centre of the flower is made from tiny seed beads.
I glued the lot together with my trusty old glue gun. I've had it for about 25 years and it's still going!
