I made the flowers for my nephews wedding and I think they turned out beautifully. I received many compliments on them and I wanted to share them with you. I posted about the wedding on the blog here and here.
Maid Of Honor bouquet
I have been given the honor of being asked to make the flowers for my nephew and his fiance’s wedding. I am so excited and nervous at the same time. She saw my lace fabric flowers in my Etsy store and loved them and asked me if I would make them for her. Of course I said yes! See my nephew’s fiance, Jess, has terrible allergies so she wasn’t able to have real flowers.
I have not made my flowers into a bouquet before, but I am up for the challenge. I can’t wait to see how they look. I have been watching a lot of videos on Youtube and searching Pinterest for ideas about making bouquets out of fabric flowers. It looks quite easy I am happy to report, so I hope that I will be able to accomplish it to Jess’s satisfaction.
I plan on posting more about the wedding as it approaches so stay tuned.
Thought you might like to see a photo of just one of the fabric flowers I make. I find them easy and fun to make. I also make flowers out of other fabrics like cotton, cotton flannel, wool, and silk. I use fabrics that I have purchased from yard sales and thrift stores, because I am all about re-purposing, and the beads I use are also re-purposed from old jewelry. Of course the fabrics are thoroughly cleaned before I use them in my projects.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post and viewing the lace flower. By the way, this flower has a pin on the back so you can wear it on clothing, purses, scarves, etc.. Until next time….
Have a lovely day and be blessed,
Design fun with a repurpose!
