They were so easy to make! I just cut out a flower shape in different sizes from a few different fabrics--two denim and one felt and layered them on top of each other. The only sewing was a few hand stitches to hold all the layers together and to sew the fabric-covered button on. In less than 30 minutes, I had this done: It was so much fun, I made another in black vinyl and red. It goes with the red/black handbag. Either of these can be used in the hair or as a lapel pin like I am showing you tonight. My hair is not in an updo, so I can't try them out in the hair. I think I will wear the red/black tomorrow.
Here's the green/denim as a lapel pin on a denim jacket atop a green shirt. I should probably make a matching bag for this little ensemble. Right now my mind is full of ideas for hair flowers. I can' wait to make the next one!
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
