This is made primarily out of recycled materials, but since I bought the "rose" (a white velvet poinsetta) new before I tore it apart, painted, and reconstructed it, I thought this should go here. This was totally inspired by Louise Black's stuff on etsy, which I love but, sadly, cannot afford.

I can't wait to wear this spring with the sailor-y/preppy bright stripes I am seeing in shops already.

I put more information about how I did it on my craft blog. You can check it out here if you want to know more:

all of this, calm and reasonable as it was, made out of ordinary things as it was, was the truth now; beauty, that was the truth now. Beauty was everywhere. - Virginia Woolf

GORGEOUS! The picture on this page isnt working for me, but I checked it out on your blog. Thanks for the tute, I will definitely have to try to make one of those. Mine will be a 3rd generation copycat, haha.
