Nope, these are are button flowers. I’d seen the idea on Kiddley,a while back. Maria’s great One hour crafts site provided a much-appreciated reminder about these little cuties. I followed the instructions on the ZOOM page at PBS.

They were looking a little sad, so I modified them a bit by adding fabric leaves. I sandwiched floral wire in between two rectangles of fabric using Steam-A-Seam fusible interfacing, then cut out the leaves. I thought they were too big at first, but now I like the extra color and texture that they add.
