At first I felt slightly unconfortable doing this, I was extremely nervouse about cutting in to a fabric that held a great deal of sentimental value to someone. Once I saw the reaction of the customers upon recieveing the finished flowers I realised that it was actually bringing a great deal of confort to them in such a difficalt time. They were proud that they could display these keepsake materials in a way that looked beautiful and also alowed the precious garments to be enjoyed instead of shut away in a drawer or a box. I would like to carry on creating in memory flowers and hopefully it will bring confort to many more greiving individuals.
Examples of Keepsake items that can be used are, baby grows, first dresses, christening gowns, school uniforms, prom dresses, wedding dresses etc.
Literally any item or items can be used, if the item is too small to create the amount of flowers requested them separate material can be used to add in to the underneath of the petals so that the Keepsake material is the material that is visible. Leaves can either be made from green keepsake material or added in from separate material.
To the right is an example of a small dress that I made into a pepper pot posy arrangement.
