Bunch of Butonniers

Daughter #3 naively consented to let me handle the decorating and a few other things for her wedding; keeping her preferences in mind, of course. hehehe. The wedding is less than two weeks away eeeeeekkkkk! If there is a particular style for this event it would have to be called Bohemian Eclectic.

One of the "other things" is making the boutonnieres. Here goes!
Materials: Wool, old shirt, burlap, and felt

All cut out!

Middle of leaves:

Felt backing:

Sewing the rosettes:
(I had to change the color of the burlap because the darker could not be dyed to the right color.)

Those are fantastic. I can't wait to see more, I am really curious about the rest of the bohemian eclectic style!
