Only kidding.. I think you could use this concept (in the tut below), except instead of leaving the fabric "shabby" you'd have to sew the raw ends together (like you would a sash on a dress). Make sense? I'd probably start w/ a strip of fabric that is 3", then sew the 2 raw edges together.. turn right side out IRON.. then do the following.. http://maizehutton.blogspot.com/2007...ed-flower.html
