Tattered Petals' Profile
It was an artistic accident that led me to this business of making artful flowers out of fabric. In this case, my own trash turned out to be my very own treasure.
For my own wedding, I sought out a dress designer on Etsy to make the bridesmaid dresses of my dreams.

The dress looked nothing like it did in the pictures the designer sent me! In the infamous words of this bridesmaid's husband, "it looked like a used tampon." 'Nuff said.
