Announcement   If you're looking for a fabric flower accessory to brighten up your outfit or give as a unique gift, you've come to the right place.

I design and hand sew these retro inspired flowers. Each one is unique. I collect vintage buttons from the 1930s and 1940s and use them for many of the flower centers. Picking out the perfect button for each flower is my favorite part.

I really care that these items will last for you, so I take time to make sure they are securely constructed. I love custom orders because they give me new ideas I may not have thought of myself.

How cool is this? This retro floral print contains 2 of the 2016 Pantone Spring Fashion colors: Peach Echo and Limpet Shell. (how do they come up with these names?) Get yours now and be both retro and "on trend" at the same time!
Perusing the Vogue Spring 2016 Fashion issue, I noticed red, white, and blue geometric prints are very on trend. These red, white, and blue chevron accessories are an easy way to get on board with this trend. Available in both a brooch pin and hair clip.

My friends have been asking for a lapel pin for Warriors basketball fans. Who am I to deny people what they clamor for?

About

Designing and sewing fabric flowers for you to wear or give, since 2010.

After working for a long stretch in digital media, I longed to work with my hands again. I started creating crafts for Christmas gifts and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to keep working with my hands.

I took a class on making ribbon flowers and found I just loved working with the fabric and hand sewing. When I was a kid I used to sew simple dresses for my dolls out of felt and snaps.

I look to traditional crafts for technique, then I like to put a vintage/modern spin on the design.

I'm inspired by my materials and, of course, by the flowers I see in nature. I love ribbons, felt, silks, cottons and especially vintage buttons.

Please note that these flowers are made of fabric. Many of the flowers are constructed from starched and ironed fabric. If you run them through the washing machine, they may be ruined. If they get very wet, they may droop. They are not designed to be mauled by groups of toddlers. You should store them out of direct sunlight, to avoid fabric fading.

I LOVE custom orders. They allow me to work with you to create something I may not have thought of on my own. I request prepayment on custom orders.

For bridal parties, or other orders of multiple flowers, 10 items or more, I may be able to give you a discount. Please let me know what your needs are and I will give you a bulk price.

Please convo me to inquire about wholesale orders or consignment.
