One Last Spin, Before Summer Ends

JCrew Spring 2009

Charmed by this cover,

Michelle Jank Jewelry

smitten with this designer,
and spurred into action by Maegan's tutorial,
I cultivated my own neck bouquet.

I know what you're thinking…

Summers almost gone!
I'm just not quite ready to move on

You see, the frequent rain forecast has me dismal and gray
Perhaps I'll perk up with a beautiful bouquet

With four layers of tulle, a needle and thread
I anchored my flowers in an eye catching spread

Cut away excess, affixed trim, doodads, and a teal feather
Attached felt to the back and defied the raunchy weather

Today, I donned my neck bouquet for the 3rd time this season
Tomorrow, I'll accept the end of summer for an inspiring reason....

I'm gonna make one for fall!

What I used for my neck bouquet:

4 layers of tulle
needle and thread
silk flowers
o rings
fabric glue
wool felt

Maegan's instructions are excellent.
Be sure to check out her bouquet......perfect for fall.
