I had some old floral material which is easy to fray in my craft box. I decided to finally make some use to it. First corsage was created by folding circles of fabric into quarters and sewing them together. Invisable thread is always useful :-) Eventually the corsage will begin to look like a flower. There are many tutorials on this technique available. This corsage ended up being extra large! I also added a brooch on the back and covered some card with fabric for the base.
The second corsage was much easier. I made a card base and covered it in fabric. I cut a long piece of fabric and then used a gathering stich, I pulled the fabric until it became a rosette. I made a small rosette and a large rosette. I placed them on top each other. To create a romantic look I also stitched on a few pearls from an old necklace.
