french beaded corsage and boutonnière

My daughters went to homecoming recently and I made a corsage for one and a boutonnière for the other.

My middle daughter went stag as she is too young to date so I made her a corsage.

I also used pink rhinestone buttons and plastic sequins to make the corsage.  The beads I used were beads left over from other projects that I had been collecting in color themes so I could make flowers out of them.

My husband did a doodle and I made the boutonnière after his design as the inspiration.  I used French beading techniques to make the stars and exhaust.  Wear as the rocket and moon I embroidered the beads on to apiece of felt then cut it out and stitched that on to a wire frame.
