Do tell.

I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out how to make it.

If you look at the flower with the clip on the back in this link you will figure it out, that's how I did. I must say their is a lady on here who sells them for $0.55c each so I wonder what the poor lady in china gets paid to make these it took me 20mins the bit of chiffon cost me .50c

that is great!

i just wished my s/machine liked very thin materials . . . for some reason it won't cooperate, no matter what i do to change the settings. i might try it w/interfacing/thicker backing.

if you were to do a colored one . . . would you use a coordinated color backing?

edit . . . yes, i thank those people that sew them for a living . . . bet they can do 2 in 1 minute!

You probably already tried these, but juuuust in case...
1. Use a much smaller (thinner) needle. Make sure it's brand new, with a sharp point and no burrs or rough spots.

2. Assuming you're using a straight stitch, use a "straight stitch" foot. Delicate fabric tends to get sucked into the relatively wide zig-zag hole.

See how small the needle hole is?

I think it looks awesome! Slightly different to the ones I've seen in the GB's.

Just make sure you change it before you sew anything other than a straight stitch! It's very easy to forget. Ask me how I know...
