Denim corsages

I saw this fab idea through Summer Driggs blog and I am amazed at how easy they are, she made a necklace out of this style and others but I have just decided to make the bigger ones for now, stick safety pins on the back and voila you have a very fashionable corsage which will go with almost any casual outfit. Denim is a huge trend for this summer so I may just have to make a few more and be ultra trendy. The insides of them are just loose bits from old jewellery either sewed or glued in with fabric glue. The denim came from an old pair of jeans.

The original inspiration came from here and I followed the tutorial from here.

I used different techniques to get the different styles, the flat one has not had the edges stitched at all, the one at the back has had the edges loosely stitched and the one at the front right has the edges tightly stitched, that one is actually my personal favourite.

Have a go you will be really suprised at how easy they are, I quite like the idea of making loads and sewing them to the front of a cushion.

P.S. there are still a few items left in my blog sale on the post below so have a look there might be something that floats your boat.
