it’s not a great picture – but here’s the first hibiscus blossom, the “la petite” version.  i’m not happy with how dark the leaves are.  i guess i was so in a hurry to just get them on so i could do the blossom, i didn’t actually ‘see’ them until i was halfway thru the flower. oops.  so, i will not be using that dark green for the full size one!  i am also considering doing this one with the petals done ‘in reverse’ with regard to dark vs light.  i can do that using the same piece i used for this one!  those who purchase these kits will have way more of that fabric than will be used – just how it must be to be able to fussy cut for this effect!  always good for stash building. ^_^

and now it’s on to the big boy!!
