Crimson Petals

I've been busy doing lots of admin this weekend, and working on a custom order for a wedding that includes lots of crimson corsage brooches...... made from an old wool sweater and lots and lots and lots of black beads!

what a fabulous wedding momento. Much better than flowers that are dead a weak into married life. Or if you're like me never even make it home with you because you leave them in a sink in the loos at your reception. hey ho, if I did it all over again I'd be placing an order for sure. lush x

Those look great. What a fantastic way to reuse the sweater.

They are so pretty! How did you manage to reuse your old sweater without it falling apart?

Thanks everyone! The sweater was an 100% wool one which I turned into felt (there are lots of tutorials online for how to do this if you're interested) - it makes lovely thick felt :)

MitziMakes said...

Ah i see! Thanks that's a great tip!

I love them :)

These are really sweet and a good combination of color and material - and I love the conecept of resycling.
