I’ve been itching to share a special commission order with you, and now that I know the items in question have arrived safely in the
, I can finally show you my first ever commission for wedding corsages!! :o) USA
Back in December, I was contacted by the lovely Emily, who blogs at Emily's Vintage Visions. She is getting married in October, and having seen my felt flower corsages on my blog and Facebook page, contacted me and asked whether I could make some for buttonholes for her wedding.
I’m not going to deny that I was beyond excited to have been asked. Although I have taken commission orders before, I’ve never been asked to make anything as special as wedding corsages.
Emily chose the designs that she liked from my Etsy page, and picked the colours from a felt colour chart that I photographed and emailed her (gotta love the power of the Internet).
I made up some samples, playing around with the colours Emily had chosen, carefully painting the stamens with enamel paint to match the gorgeous mustard coloured felt.
A few alterations were made, but not many and these was the ones chosen for the final pieces.
And here they are, all together, in all their colourful glory :o)
It was an absolute pleasure working for Emily, who was incredibly patient and didn’t pressure me at all. I’m so very pleased with how they have turned out, and, thankfully, so is Emily, who has kindly blogged about them here. x
