Oversized rose headdress
|Oversized rose headdress|
|Large silk rose|
As with mist of my flowers I have painted all the fabrics for this headpiece, which basically means that a similar headdress can be created for you in colours matching your outfit or wedding theme.
Oh, I do love this rose I must say! ☺
Trooping the colour ceremony and silk flowers
As you have probably heard, last Saturday Britain celebrated the Queen’s official birthday with Trooping the Colour, a fabulous military parade.

|Black rose fascinator|

But what if we want to make a … strawberry? What fabric to use to make the work look nice and the process easy and smooth? Probably something relatively thick? Like velvet?
This is what came out of my fabric berry experimenting:
Materials: Japanese velvet, Japanese melton, satin, Japanese lining silk.
P.S. Whatever you see in the picture is a small unfinished interior arrangement. But I think that a little brooch with strawberries would look really cute!
How would you make use of these juicy berries?
