I created this pattern last year (2018) when I was trying to create something different - other than an ornament - in order to use it as a main decorative piece for my dining table. I came up with two patterns: the “water lily” and the “flower in a pot”!! If you are following me on instagram or Facebook you witnessed the “birth” of these patterns first hand.
These centerpieces can be used every day, in your holiday table, in your mantle, the bathroom, the office, the kitchen or you can make a wonderful hostess gift out of them. I wanted to create something resembling the elegance of the lotus flower (that I love) or a succulent (when used in a pot), hopefully I accomplished that. This pattern will look beautiful in whatever fabric you use but it will be spectacular in organza, satin or sheer fabrics!!!!
Many times I use curtain fabrics that are sheer and “fluffy” so I can add volume to my water lily.
