Brighten up with Flowers


Want some color in your life? Spark up a dull day, a quiet hat or jacket lapel with fabric flowers. They can be attached to a headband or wisp of netting to make a quick Fascinator. They can be added to a hat with a quick pin or sewn into place when you need something permanent. Fabric flowers come in a variety of colors and shades from vivid rainbow hues to soft pastels so look around - there's plenty to chose from.

Check on Etsy for vintage flowers or handcrafted flowers or if you'd like to make your own there are tutorials on everything from hand dying to how to construct a fabric flower.
