Then I turned the page and did fall off my chair: little fabric flowers!
I made those up out of my head too! I'm sure there are tutorials and kits for people to make flowers, but all along I have simply been playing with my fabric scraps and twisting my needle and thread in different directions to get the flower breeziness I wanted.
I have secretly pretended to be a milliner. I threw some of my flowers away because I couldn't get them right, and they're such a little bit of fabric. Then my cousin commissioned me to make organza flowers for all the ladies of her wedding party including (gasp) her, the bride. I was honored.

My conscious mind does not remember seeing prototypes anywhere for my ruffle scarves and flowers. . . I'm so trendy that Land's End is copying me, right? No, I'm joking. But I am amused at the funny ways of the universe.
I'm having a big photo shoot this weekend - more flowers and scarves in the shop next week!
