Black and hot pink corsage, facinator for the hair, coat or bag accessory

My Creation

Whilst looking for a book for Pinkpuppy earlier on in my disgrace of a craft room, which incidentally I have still yet to find I came upon two large sweet tins full of ribbons and trims. So I have decided that even though I have little time lately to take on big projects I would try and find some small ones to do. Both inside and outside the craft room. Pickles is very demanding during the day so I have decided to get back into the swing of things by making some corsages and then some brooches and other small accessories and then move back onto my beloved bags. I was getting all inspired by the utterly gorgeous creations I have been perusing on here the past month or so. I know, I know, I am rambling on again So back to business

I have a very nice but very plain black trench coat. As I have almost lost a stone in the past month I am getting brave Not quite brave enough to go the whole hog and abandon by usual black attire, but trying to introduce a cheeky hint of colour. I went through my new found stash and have picked out various black, silver and hot pink ribbons, trims and threads etc and I am going to make a corsage for my beloved trenchie. Wish me luck, I have found my invisible thread and I am about to embark on my first sewing project in what must be a year I think. Whenever it was I posted Hunny Bunny on here. (long, boring story)

The lighting isn’t very good though I am afraid. The hot pink is deeper in reality and the shimmery and hot pink ribbons glisten. Now I can actually get around to making some more.

Please excuse the models hair it’s like straw to brush. Goldie is having a very, very bad hair day today. My brush keeps on jamming in her hair the poor dear LOL. Through the lack of sew in brooch pins and the lighting not being very good in here I decided it can have a dual purpose and try it as a hair corsage in the meantime. I have just spent the past three quarters of an hour running around the house trying to bribe Pickles into modelling it for me in his hair I ended up scrambling around trying to find a what I thought would be my as new Girls World head I bought it myself a few years back to practice French plaits in as my DD didn’t have the patience to sit there I can’t have anything in this house, truly I can’t. I carefully took her out of her perfectly kept box (even through house moves) and when I turned it around the little what not (I said a little more at the time as you can probably imagine ) Her perfect blonde hair now had a bright pink fringe and bright pink speckled face, Kids arrggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

This is really lovely well done. I love the colours. It was quite funny seeing this as I made something a bit similar as a brooch a while ago and was planning on doing some more as hair accessories soon. I also have a girls world head (although not with a pink fringe, just boring blonde). I call her tallulah and bought her to take head shots of my tiaras. I was gonna put her hair up for hairpin moddeling too but like you say her hair is a bit straw like so it didn't really work for updo's.Well done on your corsage/fascinator.
