Fabric is an up close and tactile way of expressing the creative impulse. Create an imaginative flower by using fabric like a paint brush stroke. The brush stroke can be linier to direct the eye or textural to add shading and depth. This simple flower pattern is the first ingredient. A pleasing combination of fabrics with directional lines and textural effects to create shading is the second ingredient. A range of lights, mediums and darks helps add depth to the petals. A few accent fabrics that will add highlights and interest is the third ingredient. Machine Applique is the construction technique.
