Selvedged Flowers

I love using the selvedge to make flowers because it has character. This selvedge is from a piece of brown pan velvet. I will use the velvet to make other flowers but I cut off the selvedge to use for this flower. Once the selvedge has been cut off I run a running stitch down the edge that will not be seen. I pull it tight and fasten it off.
I have used a Kaisercraft pearl brad in the centre of this flower and I can attach it to cardstock.
