The Really Wild Flower Show

Here's an easy make...perhaps for Mothers Day or Easter?

I crossed a Kanzashi flower with a Suffolk Puff
and grew a happy hybrid.

Once the seed was sewn I couldn't stop.

My haberdashery was turning horticultural.

Nothing was safe...

I even pruned a shirt or two...

 some vintage curtains...

and an old skirt.

These two were cross polinated...

My scrappy grow bags are still growing...

but at least I now have some produce.

What do you do with your scraps?

Crafty ways make flowers grow.

EE xx


  1. Blimey, you have been busy. They're really pretty. xx

  2. They look great, really pretty!

  3. Busy, busy, busy. They look fantabulous.

  4. They are just gorgeous E,E. & I love your fabric combinations. I could just see them with a little brooch pin on the back or a hairclip perhaps .... or attached to the wrapping on a special gift ... hmmm ... the imagination boggles :-)

  5. I make similar flowers with my fabric scraps too! I love the term horticultural haberdashery. I may havr to pinch it!

  6. Hello Ethel,

    I love what you made with your scraps, great gardening too.

    Happy days.

  7. They look great, I've not heard of a kanzashi flower before! I love all the different patterns together. x

  8. Hi Ethel,
    Love the lovely bouquet of flowers you
    have made. What will you do with them?
    Another project in the works then? lol
    Cheers, Anita.
