  3. Those are very pretty.

    That is so unique and creative! Brilliant idea! 🙂

  6. What a great idea and such a beautiful bouquet! I would love to do this with my girls’ outgrown clothes.

    • Steph, you should so do it! They are super easy to make and honestly make a great keepsake. You could take all of their favorites and create them into a bouquet they could use at their rehearsal dinner… That would be such a great story/memory.

  7. These are beautiful! I just adore fabric roses and upcycled one are even better!
