Bagfull of Daisies

I came across this sweet little bag recently, smothered in pink daisies.  Though very pretty, not really the kind of bag I would use, not as a bag anyway, but the daisies would be lovely for all sorts of projects.

The daisies are made from fabric tubes, some very nimble fingers hand-stitched the tubes, then fashioned them into daisies and sewed them onto the bag.  I can't imagine how long it would have taken to make them all.

Feeling just a little bit guilty, very soon I had unpicked the daisies and had a lovely stash of floral embellishments. First project this paper-covered box.

Next, a lavender heart.

I added some glass bugle beads to the centres.

This one's still a WIP.

They also make rather nifty dolly hats.

But the best thing is - I've still got loads left!


  1. The bag was pretty, but putting the daisies on the other items, has made them prettier. Lovely idea!

  2. All so pretty! You have such lovely ideas.

    Bellaboo :0)

  3. What a brilliant idea Lucy!
    The pink goes so beautifully with your box! I love them on the hearts too!

  4. OH lovely,so nice and pretty. hugs xx

  5. I love that you re purposed those daises. It would have been sad for the person to be thrown in the back of a closet and the daisies not appreciated.

  6. so clever of you to have thought to repurpose them...

  7. I absolutely agree with you - the bag is beautiful, but not something I'd use. I'm very impressed how they were made though. You have put the flowers to wonderful use. Am I right that you now also have a black bag to decorate in a manner that you WOULD use? xx

  8. What a great find. I would have found it hard to take them off the purse, too.

    I love your creations. That box is gorgeous.


Thank you for your comments - I am not always able to reply but they are always appreciated.
