How to make a Fabric Flower

1) Cut a 1" wide strip of fabric that is at least 16" long. Does NOT have to be on the bias.

2) Tie a loose knot close to one end of the fabric strip.

3) Wrap the fabric strip around the knot, twisting the fabric strip to resemble petals.

4) Once you like the size of the flower, apply a big blob of  hot glue to the bottom of the flower.

5) After glue has cooled cut an organic shape from green felt and sandwich rubber band or clip between felt and fabric flower. Hot glue felt to fabric flower.

6) Your fabric flower is now complete. The only limit is your imagination :)

Flower Power @ Saddleback College Fashion 'a la Mode 2012

Saddleback College Fashion department hosted a fashion extravaganza for a couple hundred OC high school students at the end of March. There were guest speakers, lots of people from the fashion industry, fun fashion competitions, and about ten different workshops.

My workshop was creating hair accessories ( read fabric flowers ) and three rounds of 25+ students meant lots and lots of fabric flowers blooming. 

I was so impressed with the enthusiasm, creativity, and fabulous flowers created by the high school students. 

That's why I LOVE's ALL good!

Bright Boys on Coronado


Finally the sun came out after weeks of wet, dreary days in So Cal.

Spending a sunny afternoon on beautiful Coronado I began to notice that the sun wasn't the only bright thing...

Boys were rockin' the hot, brighter than bright, almost neon colors that are predicted to be the big trend for spring/summer.

Rock on!

Hats are where it's at...

I said it before and I'll say it again...cloche hats are where it's at!

Pulled low over the head to create the bell shape that the cloche is named for, you must be committed to wearing this style because you WILL have hat hair.
