Detail of the embossing:
I love the look of hand-dyed crinkly seam binding, but I'm not lucky enough to have any. I approximated the look by ripping a narrow strip of fabric from some celery-colored duck cloth in my fabric collection. I frayed the edges and was good to go--the perfect nest for that perfect Prima rose.
