All the way back in January I posted some sneaky peeks of my current projects seen here. Now a full nine months later I can show you what the two top photos were all about….Flowers!
More specifically wedding flowers for a work colleague. One of her favourite colours was purple and after previewing a number of samples she decided that Roses were the way to go. I used florist wire to help give these flowers structure so they could be styled like a real bouquet. A few sparkly beads completed the white roses and two buzzing bees were made up from crochet thread. One bee hung from invisible thread from the brides bouquet to create the illusion of it buzzing around the flowers. The second bee was sewn into the grooms corsage. The bridesmaid flowers were a miniature version of the brides. It was a fun and fabulous wedding and I wish them all the best for the future. More photos than you can shake a stick at await you below!
(P.S. – if you attempt this at home beware the tedium of making the same flower about 30 times and beware the wire I almost had my eye out a few times – well worth it though!)
