I have spent the last couple of days making these.

Lots and lots of tissue paper mixed in with a generous sprinkling of old paper dress patterns.

It is a little addictive if I am honest.
Very satisfying.

I will be teaching people how to make them at the weekend.
Just in time for Mother's Day.
"I Blooming Love My Mum"
from 12 - 3 at The Railway SW16.
The best bit is that it is free.
Its part of what has become known as "The Mother of all weekenders"
I had an idea to decorated the venue with the flowers.
But I needed something bigger, more of a statement piece.
Out came the instruction sheets from all those now chopped up old patterns.

Very happy.
If you are in SW16 this weekend pop along say "Hi" and have a go at making something lovely for your Mother.
