Pink Posy Visits Polynesia!

- Jennie took a little piece of Pink Posy out with her to the wilds of Hawaii last month! The island of Aloha, flowers in the hair and the adornment of leis! She also learnt how to make lei's from a 3rd generation Master Lei maker and has returned from her travels with her very own lei making needle to get practising with some British flowers! 

But for something less fiddly, and non-hay fever-inducing, why not make your own Fabric Flowers- like the one's in the photos below!These look lovely on: chair sashes, worn as corsages and donned in your hair! A perfect Summer accessory! You can make your own fabric flower following our tutorial here:

A Pink Polyester/Satin and Organza Hand-made flower adorned with Pink Posy's Clear Diamante Gem Cluster Embellishment (Flat backed)- find your gem and pearl clusters here:

Why not hand-make your own chair sash decorations- using different colour fabrics to match your theme?

Want to up-cycle an old evening dress? All we did here was to tie a satin/polyester sash around the waist and affix one of our hand-made fabric flowers with a brooch pin-back (a safety pin would be sufficient). Creating a subtle contrast and added elegance!

A slightly bright photo which does not come close to demonstrate how lovely our pearl gem clusters are! You can just thread a bobby pin or two through the back of your handmade flower and wear it in your hair! Great for: weddings, evening events, festivals or even day-to-day summer wear!

Our Ivory Pearl and Clear Diamante Gem Clusters add a sense of understated beauty to any craft project and make a great finishing touch to a Fabric Flower Centre! They are flat-back and measure approx 1.5cm in diameter and can be purchased here:

What are you waiting for? Get making your own fabric flowers to match your own style/ colour theme!
