What do ya think of this?

What do you think of this wanna be millinery flower I made today? I know it's not something that hasn't been done before, but I had all of these supplies out today and have been wanting to make some kind of flower. It was also an excuse you use this sheer dotted swiss that I've been dieing to play with and also just happens to be listed in my shop ;). But honestly, it really is such a pretty off-white dotted swiss with such yummy flocked dots!
Also made some of these too!
I stopped at a tag sale today that had tons and tons of sewing stuff. I was in a rush and didn't have as much time as I would have liked to sift through it all. She had this neat old plush trim in white and pink. I thought it was blanket trim but the packaging says it's for "girdles, corsets and brassieres"....ooh la, la!

Hope you are all having a nice weekend...so far!
