Felt flower corsage
It’s my friend Lucy’s birthday, so I decided to make something for her. She’s a real fashionista, so I thought I would make something she can wear. I have been wanting to make something from one of my Japanese craft books for ages, so I dug out one of them which is all about making different corsages (コサージュ).
As the current fashion seems to be for really bright almost fluorescent colours, I made this one in fluoro pink, with a grey leaf and purple centre. There’s no sewing involved: it’s all about cutting the pieces carefully then slotting the inner petals in place through the leaf/outer petal. The actual making of it was easy, but the cutting took the most time as you have to place the slots in exactly the right place. I think it looks pretty cool! The best thing was that when I gave it to Lucy, she was wearing a fluoro pink T-shirt, so it matched her perfectly.
