Up-cycled wool flower corsages

Leave a comment

These corsages are perfect for using every scrap of fabric left over from the felted wool jumpers!

This lovely pink wool and angora flower came from a jumper which had already yielded enough fabric to make  a pair of slippers and a pair of wrist warmers.

They are fairly easy to make. You cut circles out of the fabric, fold then over twice and tack together.

I will go into more detail later; the dark purple fabric is up for flower making next so I will photograph it as I go along.

I add a brooch back and a hair clip, to make them easy to wear.
