These would be perfect to stick in a little flower pot on Mother’s Day….. just in case you are looking for an idea or addition to what you have (it comes up so quick every year!)

There is a little bit of hand stitching.  You can do a bit to embellish the flower — you could even add some beads if you’d like.
