Here are some sneak peeks of the items I will be teach­ing dur­ing the Cocoa Daisy Des­ti­na­tions Mykonos 2010 event.

All you need is scal­lop vel­vet trim (pro­vid­ed in the June Kit) , scis­sors, a sewing nee­dle, 3 strands of embroi­dery floss, adhe­sive and a rhine­stone. Cut the trim so you have 9 scal­lops (approx­i­mate­ly 3.25″) thread 3 strands of embroi­dery floss into a sewing nee­dle and begin gath­er­ing at one end. Con­tin­ue to gath­er the trim along the sewing nee­dle all the way to the oppo­site end of the trim Pull the embroi­dery floss togeth­er tight­ly until you have...
