~ corsage tutorial #1 ~

i have another corsage to show you but for want of time, this one was a little easier to start with :)
.. .so, you will need
-a length of {wide?}satin ribbon
-a strip of fabric
-a length of tulle
-& a sewing needle or some craft glue

~ the thing i love about this is it is so versatile depending on the colours/fabrics/widths/ribbons you use ~

but first, twirl your strip of fabric{mine was about the length & width of a ruler}

then round it into a circular shape & stitch or glue into place

& then onto approximately the middle of the ribbon

i then folded some tulle together, did a straight stitch up one side, & gathered.
i then stitched it around the flower, tucking it underneath as i went,
but you could wear it without the tulle, & even make more flowers side by side

then tie onto your wrist with a big bow & you will have a stunning fashion accessory!

or you may even like to use these on special presents!

imagination heralds all kinds of wonderful possibilities.. .

& i send a little of mine to you! loveliest thoughts

there is, in the coziness of winter's corridor, nothing more lovely, than the propositions of a dream-filled notebook, calling me to find {& create}beauty within {usually in the wee hours of the night :) } such loveliness for you!
