Handmade Bridal Hair Accessories: Fabric Flowers

A couple of new flower designs in my etsy store using my french flower making tools!  These flowers are both made from silk. The Peony Rose above is made from dupion and is quite papery. I haven't named the flower below, I'm not sure what it really looks like?  It is made from a gorgeous (expensive) silk satin - I would love to see this worn on a dress! 
These flowers are all hand cut, hand-shaped and sewn together. It is quite a time consuming process - which is reflected in the price but the result, I think you will agree, is worth it!  I'm really enjoying a fresh look to my hair pieces and taking my designs to the next level.
