Hey friends! I’m Kirstin, half of the sister team that blogs over at kojodesigns, and I’m so excited to be here today! I love (love love love) everything about Back to School. As a once-teacher, I love seeing racks of school supplies- what an exciting time of year! And even though my kiddos are still too little to be heading off to classrooms this fall, that doesn’t mean that we can’t get in on the Back to School fun, right?
This fabric flower corsage was inspired by the gorgeousness at EmersonMade, but scaled down to little girl size. I love it that it can add a little visual interest to a dress or lovely up a cardigan without having to permanently alter the garment. Ready to make one for the little girl in your life? You’ll need: -long thin strips of fabric (monochromatic, or in a few different colors/patterns) -a circle of felt (this will be the backing) -a button (or a cluster of little pearls) for the center -a pin
Hot glue an extra piece of felt (to cover all of your stitching) and a pin to the back of your corsage…
…and pin on a your little Back to Schooler (though, mine isn’t quite old enough for school just yet)! Thanks again for having us, Andrea… and happy back to school friends! Come say hi anytime at kojodesigns!
Thanks for the cute tutorial Kirstin! It will look great on a girl of any age!
Don’t forget to check out the DY(S)G & B Flickr group! It already has some great outfits added. It has me excited to sew for older kids!
