Bridal Ivory Fabric Flower
Hi, my name is Tammy DeSalle. I live in Portland with my husband and our two boys.
I have always loved to create. My mother is a seamstress and she taught me how to sew when I was 8 years old. I worked as a seamstress for several years and transitioned into jewelry making about 10 years ago when my 1st son was born (it's hard to fit behind a sewing machine when you are 8 or 9 months pregnant). I still love to sew but I also love to learn new ways to be creative, there are so many new mediums to master, but I will always have a love for fabric. My newest love is my layered fabric clips/pins. It is so fun to play with the colors and textures of different fabrics, feathers, and buttons. They are something that anyone and everyone can wear. They are perfect for brides to wear under the veil so once the veil comes off you are still "finished" head to toe. Some brides are even using them in place of the traditional veil. Of course the flowers are just gorgeous on the colored stretch crochet headbands for the babies! They can also be clipped directly into the hair for older girls (great for the entire bridal party, bridesmaids, flower girls, mother of the bride/groom ) or worn as a pin on shirts, jackets, purses, hats or just about anything else you can think of. They make a great gift for the wedding party from the bride and unlike real flowers can be enjoyed for years instead of days.
Each flower is one of a kind and handmade by me with love. I sometimes use vintage pins or earrings for the centers, some are beaded and some have handmade clay buttons that I also make. I can also use a special piece a bride may have as the "something old, new, borrowed, or blue" for the centerpiece or even special fabric for the layers of petals! The finishing touches of flirty feathers or the tiny sparkling crystals make them so much fun to wear and always a conversation piece!
Take care and enjoy the wedding planning process!
