Letter W



W is for Westringia. If you're talking about Australian native plants, the most common species is Westringia fruticosa,  grown in many gardens along the east coast of Australia. It is more commonly known as Coastal Rosemary. As we are coming close to the end of the alphabet, I  have been racking my brain to think of another and different  technique to use in this series of  all fabric tags. This tag is my interpretation of an enlarged Westringia flower which is white, a bit hairy with a greenish centre and orange purply spots on the bottom petals. I made this from the remnants of a damaged table napkin and although I am not happy with the way I blotched the flower markings, here it is, with a printed fabric base and machine embroidered word.
