Little Flowers

One for her hair, and one for her dress....

Whenever I make a "brooch" or decorative item to add to a garment, I like to attach it to the garment with a safety pin or pin-back instead of sewing it directly to the garment. This way the brooch can be taken off the dress before sending it through the laundry.

The "Baby Deer" dress I sewed last fall has been through the wash countless times, but the flower embellishment still looks great because it is detachable.


  1. What a great idea! They are wonderful extra details for an outfit :-)

  2. This is really cute! It's such a great idea!

  3. I love this idea- how is it made? Is there a tutorial somewhere or a pattern?
