Silk Swatch Bouquet

$ 295.00

This is a large and generous bouquet with more than 40 flowers, and plenty of leaves. The flowers were made from large swatches (20" x 30") of coordinated drapery silk that retails at $144/yard.

Some blue flowers show a little sun fading, which adds to the uniqueness of the arrangement. The outer edges of the flowers are left unfinished and can be trimmed or frayed further.

Each flower is built on a wire stem. The bouquet is taped with florists tape. It could be cut apart and the flowers rearranged, or it could be dropped into a vase and be displayed.

The arrangement is roughly 15" in each direction. It is heavy and will require a solid container if used as-is. The glue is waterproof but this arrangement is intended for indoor use only; the fabrics are not treated for outdoor use and will fade in direct sunlight.

The bouquet will ship in a large carton packed with egg crate foam. It will need fluffing and adjusting when it arrives; the stems will bend and can be straightened.

Forever Flowers from KarenTiedeStudio are fabric flowers, individually handmade from upcycled upholstery remnants and fabrics leftover from abandoned sewing projects. Fabrics are not purchased new at retail, although some may be collected from "last yard" bins at fabric stores. Many fabrics are acquired when lifelong quilters and sewists donate or sell their stash.
