Silk Roses to accessorise your Melbourne Cup outfit.

I love making folded roses using different fabrics.
I find it very therapeutic and really rewarding.
By folding and turning the fabric in my hands I can form a one of a kind flower; no two are ever alike. As I go along I stitch down the petals so that they don't fall apart.
These roses have been made out of three different silk fabrics which have various shades of blue in them. The back of each rose has a circle of felt sewn on and a pin is attached.
They look great pinned to a hat, dress, lapel or bag.
Currently in my etsy shop.
