Lets welcome the spring with a bunch of fabric flowers :)

Good day friends hows life going on at your end :) Over here in Pakistan the pleasant change in the weather has begun though its still more towards the coldish side but still its pleasant as its not as " Extreme " as it used to be .There was a time when i used to enjoy winters ......But not any more ,after i have had kids i sort of dislike winters as my kiddos are really sensitive to cold :(

Any how coming back to the real topic these are the pictures of the fabric flower brooches that got sold in my online shop in the past few weeks i have been keeping the pictures to share with you all at the arrival of spring and now i feel is the right time...... so have a look and enjoy.

This one is my personal favorite i just love how the combination of pink and white self printed silk turned out.

For this one i have a lil confession to make the material was really thin and this was my fist attempt for this type of petals so was never totally satisfied with it .

Look at this beauty ! its made with the same technique i used to make the red pointy petal flower i showed you above but this time i had experience so better and neat results,

and with this one i literally played and experimented with :) and enjoyed every bit of making it and am very happy with the out come .

Hummm ......!The Poppy flower that i really loved its made using the simple technique of gluing together the circles of different sizes with melted edges .

The six round petal Kanzashi flowers ,look at the center of this one i used a round glass pebble on it and it look quite interesting :) what do you think ?
Hey .... why dont you tell me in the comments bellow which one you liked the best :)
Take care and enjoy the new spring
