Making Fabric Flowers for Fascinator for St Patrick's Race Day

Just got a little sidetracked from my previous post about making silk roses for a bride.  I made these on the weekend for a headpiece for a georgous girl going to the St Patrick's Race Day. 

These are dog roses and are dead easy to make.  I really like these flowers as they sit quite flat - sometime you need a flatter flower.

Just to make sure you understand - both these will not be on the same hat.  The green silk flowers are for the fascinator and the other one is made from cotton.  I always think it is so amazing that changing the fabric can change the whole look.

I have sold  these dog roses with a little attachment at the back so you can thread it through a headband, use as a brooch or use on a thin belt or ribbon around the waist.

Flower Headpieces - Couture Fashion Week

Wow - you can see why I love flower making - so many possibilities.  This would be amazing for Spring Carnival Racing in September in Australia.  Us Queensland girls love  big statement headwear with lots of colour and nothing too sublte!

They were part of a presentation held at the Shangri-La hotel as part of Couture Fashion Week.

The link below is great to follow and have a good look at what else was presented.
