DIVASEWING

I created these crocheted flowers with rhinestone button centers and simple freestanding appliqued leaves.

Here I embellished an appliqued flower with hand beading using clear monofilament thread.

For this hat, I made three fabric rolled roses and some leaves.

I’ve made so many embellished baby gifts using Alencon Lace.  First I sew down the lace and then secure each and every bead and sequin by hand…it’s labor intensive, but it looks stunning once finished.

Simple crocheted flowers spice up a fabric headband.

For these flowers, I ironed on fusible stabilizer to the back of the flower.  I then cut them out and alternated tulle between the layers.  I finished off the flower with dozens of black seed beads in the center.

On this dress, I finished the overskirt using a Madeira applique technique called Madeira Magic.

I just love to monogram!  Everything from wedding items to baby items gets a personalized monogram in my house…LOL!
