A Flower a Day: Ruffled Folded Strip Carnations

Materials: Lightweight satin
Techniques: Gathered folded strip, sewing

The bright pink polka dot satin was from some pyjama bottoms (not mine) which looked unworn when I picked them up for almost nothing from a charity shop. The folded strip in question was in fact the hem of a pyjama leg, which I gathered and then folded around into something which looks like a carnation-like flower. I'll do the other leg hem in the same way to create a pair, for a matching set of hair clips.
