Lace and ribbon flower

Gathered a 12" length of grosgrain ribbon with a triangular pattern running stitch in a coordinating thread
Adjusted the gathering for consistent ruffle.

Knotted thread and sewed ends together.
Stacked ribbon atop gathered lace and topped with large vintage button.
An easy and thrifty corsage flower.

How cool, so much with so little material, I love it.

Thanks Linda!
The ribbon is more "ashes of rose" pink rather than the peach tone shown on screen.
