This was a week to finish and finalise our shirt and accessory designs. I really got into my flow when I started experimenting with the origami flowers for my accessory.

I started off with a basic flower using white cotton shirting fabric backed with heavy duty vilene.


And going back to the original inspiration I tried using some super sized dollars – first in paper:

And then in fabric (using white spirit under the heat press):

Experimenting with different sizes and creating a scarf/ruffle:

And unable to resist gathering all the flowers together… Chelsea flower show?

 Really pleased with how these have turned out and all the possibilities of combining them – over sized corsages, ruffles, scarfs, boa…
