I’ve made some more 100% silk flowers! 😀 They’re a decoration for my 1920s sheer summer cloche hat.
My inspiration was this pretty 1920s sheer cloche with a flowering branch.
I’ve used my hand-painted and starched silk fabric and sheer viscose fabric.
I’ve cut out flowers with four petals in pink and white.
Then I’ve attached them to a piece of wire …
… and covered the wire with green cotton thread. The thread is just wrapped around the wire and not glued – I don’t like to use store-bought glue.
For the pink flowers I’ve used silk fabric, and for the white ones viscose fabric. Each flower is made with two layers.
I’ve also stitched some petals and leaves …
… to a piece of starched viscose fabric. Because it’s starched, the edges don’t fray.
Then I’ve stitched the wire to the back of the flower corsage.
This is the finished flower corsage with my cloche hat.
I’ve also made a wild rose out of silk fabric with seed bead stamens.
Here I’m wearing the silk flower accessory with my crochet lace hat.
