I could get seriously addicted to these muslin flowers. Seriously. After having this book for ever, I finally went out and bought one of those mini-irons. Plus this attachment. You know the ones? The ones you see in the stores and say "How cute, but what would I do with it?" This is what you do with it, you make these flowers. I tried this once before, thinking I could get away without using the iron, but it was a complete disaster. The fabric is painted with stiffener, so the flower itself is sturdy. I'm still working out the kinks of my own version of what's in the book, but this could be my new favorite thing. It actually has to be, to justify the expense. Good grief, what was I thinking??
