Newest fabric corsage with secret compartments.


Taaah Dahhh....here is my newest secret compartments (notice the s on the end) fabric corsage. Did you notice the s on the end of the word compartments? I thought you would. ^_^  I decided that we sometimes might want to carry our chap stick and some money with us and leave that purse at home or locked up in the car.


I'm such a clever gurl!!! Oh yes I am. Hehe!! I made this corsage out of a beautiful hankie that some how had one end torn to pieces. Not sure how it happened....kinda looked......like......cat......claws. OMGOSH..MS PEACHES, I'm going to get you cat. I really shouldn't fuss at her because the end of the hankie was hanging out of the little basket trunk I keep them in. I mean...what self respecting cat would pass up the chance to play with a silk hankie when it moves every time she walks pass. I should thank her because there would have been no way that I would have cut it if it hadn't been damaged.


I used felt for the biggest flower and added one of my vintage beaded buttons. (thank you Liz...I so love all my old buttons you sent to me) Also attached to the felt flower is a pretty black goose feather. The small blue flower is from an old tattered silk hankie with another one of my vintage buttons sew in the middle.  I love repurposing items and the older the better.

Now...on to the next corsage...perhaps a secret compartment for that charge card you never want to leave home without. ^_^

Until next time...........Hugs, Regi

  2. Indeed you are a clever girl, even if you say so yourself, lolol ;-). It is a jolly neat idea though, the secret compartments are very useful. Very pretty corsage altogether I'd say.
