Fabulous Fabric Flowers - Custom Order and Upcoming Classes

I have been SOOOOOOOOOOO honored to be asked to teach classes locally at one of the greatest art studios around...The Cosmic Sister.

The owner Rae is simply an amazing woman.  She rocks the house with her classes, open studio and work with children.  Nevermind her relentless eye for amazing clothing, vintage pieces and the ability to alter clothing to look like no other piece in the world!!!  I am honored to work with her in the upcoming month as a guest artist.

Today she called because she had a customer looking for a hair flower (a la Carrie Bradshaw) so instantly she called me!!  (thank you Rae!!!)  She gave me an idea on colors and so I hit the fabric store and busted a couple out in the colors she was looking for.  I threw in a couple more for good measure and one made JUST for her ;)  I wonder if she'll figure out which one it is!  LOL!

Some are backed with barrettes and others with hair elastics depending on how you wear your hair most.

Here are the samples I've made and I will also be teaching a class in fabric and paper flower making on Monday night, December 20th, at 7 pm.  Amazing for last minute gifts or add ons for stocking stuffers or gift toppers!  The class is $40 and all materials will be provided.

Fabric and Paper Flower Fusion:  $40 per person
Monday, December 20th – 7:00pm
Come create  an original series of 6 fabric and 6 paper flowers to be used as a PERFECT last minute gift or as extremely unique gift toppers. 
Techniques include:  (colors, papers, embellishments will depend on availability)
·         Paper Flower Folding
·         Fabric incorporation – we will be creating brooches and barrettes both large and small
·         Distressing methods for paper and fabrics

Here's an idea of just SOME of the things we'll be doing!!

My most recent upcoming class is THIS coming Monday, December 6th at 7 pm at The Studio and I will be teaching the gals that are already signed up (there is still space available) how to create an Explosion Box!!!    The class fee is $40 and you need to bring only yourself!  All materials will be provided.

The box we will be creating will be in a vintage theme, creams, pinks, light greens, with tags, embellishments, journaling spaces and spaces for photos, gift cards, as well as a gift INSIDE the box if you wanted to give it away.
