Flourishing Floral

Spring may be officially over for 2015, but flowers continue to be abloom on prints, embellishments and designs everywhere! Fabric trends are showcasing fresh flowers in multiple designs and color ways; Delicate prints like Camelot Fabrics Wildflowers-Daisy Dot Print, or bold and punchy like Benartex Fabrics Crochet Flowers Line. However, you don’t just have to stick with fabric to participate in this pretty trend. Try bringing blooms to life by creating floral themed accessories like a brooch or a corsage. Try a pattern like La Todera’s Momo Brooch Pattern using fabrics, trims, zippers  or ribbons. Or create an embellished hair slide using Dritz ½” Fold Over Elastics. Adorn a neckline or a hem with beautiful, delicate or colorful floral accents. So don’t be afraid to use your imagination and creativity to jump in and try this trend.   Floral beauty never really fades. Flowers are as beautifully timeless as they come. Check out our Flourishing Floral Pinterest trend board for even more inspriation!
