I love this print so much, I could just swim in it. A gift from my friend Rian (Tuesday Scarves, look her up!), this fabric was actually a set of curtains. These were lovingly hung in my old house in Seattle, above my sewing machine, and were one of the first things I packed to bring to NYC - to help it feel more like home.
I was recently asked to participate in an upcoming fundraiser for the Ruby Room, which will be hosting a Fashion Show and auction featuring reworked fashions by Seattle designers, tomorrow night.
Every year before Valentine’s day I create a batch of these little flower pins using beloved fragments of some of my favorite fabrics. This year, I hand-cut out 12 layers of petals for each pin using remnants of my grandmother’s blouses, scraps of Liberty fabric, and an antique silk wedding dress. Then I arrange and sew the layers together with vintage rhinestone button and affixed a metal pin on the back.
