The inside felt layers hold a variety of needles and pins. The velvet pansy adds an extra touch of Victoriana, and it can be used to embellish other projects as well. You will not be able to stop at just one.

Wait until the large embellishments are in place. Sometimes these loose seams are perfect for hiding the raw edges of meandering embellishments. Placing Lace, Ribbons, and Trims Begin by deciding just how much embellishment you want to use. The mood or feel of the project often dictates the number of embellishments used.

Note: I often use a fabric spray adhesive to attach the top to the backing. This is a temporary hold and gives you time to tack the top and backing together. I use 505 Spray and Fix.
