I was 19 years old at the time and my grandmother taught me how to make this flower (view A). She and I made all the head pieces. It's called the Diablo Rose because it was created by one of the teachers who taught in the Apparel Design Program at Diablo Valley College that my mother attended.
Over the summer there will be a couple guest bloggers who will show what they've done with this pattern.
Next week back to my assorted projects and a thrift store pirate!
