My First Solo-Made Fabric Bouquet

My little girl with the fabric bouquet. Someone's got to hold it while I take a picture of it, right?! ^_^

It's been a while since I've made fabric flowers due to my very busy schedule. If it's not for my friend's sister's wedding, I won't be making a new one. And if it's not about her wedding, I won't be REALLY inspired to make a fabric bouquet!

Last April, I helped my friend on her sister's fabric bouquet. I did the flowers and she did the assembling. That's where my high school friend saw my work. Until she requested me to make one for her.

It was a big challenge for me because this time, I'll be doing it alone - from the fabric flowers, down to the assembling of the bouquet. Not to mention my extremely little time, since I've been packing as mad because we're relocating!

But then, everything went so well. I so loved the outcome, and I still can't believe that I was able to create a very stunning piece - especially for a first timer! *wink*

Hopefully, and I'm really crossing my fingers, that this will be the start of my long-lived dream.

Cheers and enjoy the pics! :)

Materials used ranges from chiffon, satin, lace, faux pearls, and some blings!

These are the flowers I used on the bouquet - they're actually four different types of shade/design.

The bouquet's handle wrapped with jute string.

My June bride specifically requested for a Rustic inspired theme with less bling.

Here's my very first fabric bouquet - another milestone for Nia&Bella. And I must say, that I am one happy crafty mom here, and definitely there is one happy bride who is currently getting married today!

Best wishes Azel! Cheers to a blissful married life with your Knight!
