Making simple flower corsage with repurposed fabric

Here's my latest quick project : handmade flower corsage embellished with wood beads and lace.

Here's the back side.

This corsage was very simple and fun to make, and the secret was...

I used this bow maker plates from Clover.  This is an awesome product, which comes in three different plate sizes, and makes beautiful bows and corsages

The best part of this corsage making was that I made use of a repurposed fabric, or I recycled this dress that our girls used to wear.  The girls loved this dress so much that I just couldn't donate it to the charities, like we normally do with our kids' old clothing...

The corsage looks really pretty on this plain linen bag, I think.

Happy corsage making and happy repurposing :)  Hope you all have a great weekend.

Feedsack and linen bird coin purse

Hello my fellow crafty friends!
(From my handmade birdy pouches :)

These coin purses / mini zipper pouches are made of my original pattern, and this time, I made these cute guys with a combination of linen and my antique feedsack fabrics.

I purchased these feedsack collection at the Long Beach Quilt Festival in the summer of 2010, and I had been hoarding them ever since, imagining what to make from these precious bits of fabrics...  I finally decided to make use of them, starting with small bits and pieces.

As I'd imagined, I think feedsack and linen is a perfect match!

These zipper pouches are fully lined and padded with fleece batting, so it's safe enough to carry small gadgets such as digital cameras and cell phones inside.

These bird coin purses are listed in my shop now.   Hope they can find their new lovely home soon ;)
