sewn floral bowls

Some of my favorite photos from this spring are of the sewn tulips for Styled.’s ice cream bar. They would be perfect grouped together as a centerpiece and look delicately pretty served on plates when filled with treats.

Make a grouping of sewn floral bowls for your summer celebrations…

Start with blooms that open up nicely (tulips are perfect, roses and lilies would also work). Snip each bloom at the base and carefully shape the petals into place. Using a needle and embroidery thread hand stitch the petals together. The small bowls will nicely hold candy, sauces, garnish or other small treats.
