|Silk flower brooch|
And, it turns out, I love making them too. Out of fabric, that is. (We've already talked about my lack of green fingers.)
And I will let you into a little secret. I am planning a flower making evening workshop this summer, at my favourite local cake shop in Bedford.
So, to get everyone in the mood - and to get me making enough samples to have ready to share with people, I am going to be popping up plenty of flower themed posts here this week.
First up is an elegant silk number.
Do you like my suit, by the way? I got it at the swishing night a few weeks ago. Only thing wrong with it is that it needs a couple of buttons sewing on. I think I can just about manage that! Although, I am already lazily thinking it doesn't really need three buttons down the front...
I might adjust the sleeves a bit. We'll see. But otherwise a not too shabby outfit for £5.
And as for the brooch, I overcame my selfish instinct to keep it once it was finished, and gave it away. But I must confess, that due to liking the way it looks with my new old suit, I have already made a second one for me to keep. I'll just have to make sure I don't ever wear it when I see my friend, or else we'll be daft brooch twins.
