Your wish is granted! A simple crochet stitch, flowers, leaves and pom pom trim all crocheted and put together with minky fabric. Easy peasy to run through your machine.
I attached the pom pom trim and flowers to the yarn side to add interest, but you could add it to the fabric side if you like it that way.
Lovely flowers and leaves add a whimsy, 3D effect to the fabric side. Really easy patterns and I've given you a video link for the pom pom trim. Lots of up close photos too.
As with all my patterns, I'm always available to help you along the way.
Add them to the fabric side or the yarny side. Either way I love it!
