Working Wednesday

I have launched into making another batch of fanciful flowers that will ultimately become brooches and hair candy.

Even though I've done this many, many times, it still amazes me how the flat circles of organza, satin and other fabrics turn into ruffly edged, three dimensional petals.

I generally do these in small batches, unless I have a custom order for a particular color that I need to finish asap.

I start out like this:

And eventually, I end up with a mountain of this:

The next step, of course, will be to layer petals together and sew them into a flower, which will get a felt backing that's mounted on various forms of hardware.

And that's what I'm working on this Wednesday. How about you?
