''This book gives exact instructions to dressmakers, milliners and home needle-workers for the making of flowers and leaves, together with 47 illustrations and suggestions for their use.''
''The easiest way to work out the instructions in this book is to collect on your work-table bits of silk, ribbon or even cambric to experiment with, then with a tape-measure, scissors, needle and thread follow each stem of a process in the order given...These flowers will be very simple indeed if you will follow this suggestion.''
The antique and vintage ribbon, thread, fabrics, etc., can be found on Atomic Mall quite readily. You just have to hunt a little bit! :) Or, of course, you can utilize contemporary tools and materials found at a near by fabric, craft or hobby store
