Tonight I'm suffering from a bit of insomnia, so instead of browsing the Internet for who-knows-what, I'm going to show you what I've been working on.
My little brother is getting married in about 3 weeks. He and his sweet fiance kindly asked if I'd be willing to help out with a few things. They wanted some wrist corsages made for the sisters, mothers, and grandmothers that coordinate with their wedding colors- white/pearl, ivory, moss green, gold and gray. Pretty, huh?
I had to look up how to make ribbon flowers, then went kinda crazy and tried out a bunch. They both liked the variety of styles, so I put together this prototype to see how they liked the results. Both were pleased so I've been making dozens of tiny ribbon roses, "daisies", rose buds and leaves when I have a spare minute here and there.
The flowers and leaves are adhered to an ivory felt oval with hot glue, and a lovely dove gray ribbon will tie the corsage to the wrist.
I've also been asked to make two somewhat matching ribbon headbands for the flower girls to wear, as well as the ring bearer pillow. I'm so glad they've asked me to help out with such special details of their important day! These projects have me so excited that it's becoming very hard not to ignore the other projects that need my attention.
