First Make of the Year

Ok, so we're a few weeks into January, and kind of back to normal after the madness of the Christmas  break.

I have to admit to not having been quite as productive as I had hoped, but life does sort of get in the way at times. However with a growing love of the beautiful fabrics I brought recently I was eager to have a play with them as soon as possible.

I put them to good use and made this very vintage inspired corsage, taking a different fabric for each of the petals, and finishing it off with one of the super shiny buttons I also purchased. 

Im really pleased with it.

I think im going to make a second one, similar but slightly different, over the coming week, but im also on the look out for tutorials on making fabric flowers to get a few new design ideas. If you have any recommendations please let me know.

Happy weekends all! 



  1. This is really pretty, I love the grey and yellow colour combo!

  2. Thanks, im taking a bit of vintage inspiration at the moment, and playing with some more muted and subtle colours. Really like this one.
