But really it is called flower pounding. My sewing group have been trying out different techniques and this time the exercise was to experiment with flower pounding. I collected a variety of leaves and flowers to test out, but found that I was smooshing rather than pounding. The dandelion was particularly messy! In the end, the one that produced the best result was the pansy. As my prints were a bit hit and miss, I opted to select the best 2 and appliqué them down and used green fabric to compliment them with stems and leaves. I have no idea what will become of this little piece...I'm thinking a notebook cover might be just the thing.
