Flowers, Fresh Off the Yarn Ball

October 2, 2011

Well, the big 75th anniversary party is over, and the corsages were a hit! I ended up using a different pattern than the rose pattern I spent weeks searching for(see below blog). It took way too long to make, and, as I quickly realized, takes a lacing hook and yarn. So  a simple shell pattern which was then rolled up into a flower shape had to do. Here are the results:

This is one that i made from strips of jersey cloth while I gave my cramping hands a break from crocheting.

Most of these corsages ended up in everyone’s hair! We were lucky enough to have some student hairdressers and make-up artists volunteer their time to “vintage” up our looks for the big party, and when the corsages came out, everyone, including the hairdressers, wanted them up in their hair….I sense an etsy idea brewing!
