Year Made: The cotton applique was made in the 1980s. The ribbon rose embellishment is contemporary.
Item: Using a 100% cotton "star shaped" applique as a base, I added a single ribbonwork floral - a mauve 100% silk floral on a C.1980 French bit of green ombre rayon ribbon.
Condition: Excellent - as new. From a non-smoking, pet free home.
Size: 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" approx. The inside floral measures about 1-1/8" x 7/8".
Final Comments: Projects? Well, anything you can think of and yes, that includes stitching to a piece of clothing and leaving it on. There is no glue or sugar pips on this piece.
NOTE: While the center floral is mauve - if you have a color in mind, just let me know and if I have it in my silk tray, I can custom make the applique with the color you want!
