I may have spent the whole week holed up here cold and carless, but l have been working. I think l have finally managed to solidify my new line for 2009. I am thrilled! I have kept it simple, a strong image and only a few items. Eeek, a few items. This is always my downfall, l get so carried away and do more and more. Then l have too many items and wish l had been stronger and stuck to just a few. Okay, l will be strong and keep it tight – promise.
The pretty flower above is my new corsage brooch. It ties in perfectly with my other items and just adds a little dash of style to the more household items. I have always wanted to have a corsage in my line (l certainly sold plenty of the refab flowers and their related items) but could never come up with something that l really liked or that sort of tied in with other things. This flower ticks all the boxes. Basically it is just a bigger better version of my refab flower but made using only two vintage rose print fabrics and my own music and written prints. The centre is vintage milinery. I really like it and have been wearing it round the house. Okay the look is slightly lost on a tatty old jersey, but hey it brightens me up a bit!
Will start photographing the new goodies soon as poss.
Have a nice Friday.
