black and cream satin flower hairband

Last summer I was wandering around the mall, looking to cool down in the air conditioning when I started to notice a trend of flower embellishments on women’s clothing. On closer inspection, I noticed a few different categories, one of which was the slightly curved satin flower, and which was the one behind the inspiration for these hairbands. I picked up some cream and black satin and netting for some visual interest. More hours than I’d like to admit later, I ended up with a pattern, a process and a couple of prototypes.

The possibilities with this sort of thing is almost endless. I can mix and match fabrics, petal shapes, and centre finishing to create a variety of moods. I next plan on playing around with some raw edged duponi silk that is leftover from another project. I feel like this is a direction that I’m interested in exploring further and I look forward to seeing what comes out of the experiments. Check back soon to see what I’ve come up with.
