March Spotlight - Guiding Fabric Flowers
Guiding Fabric Flowers
Inspired by similar flowers on a facebook group, I decided to use vintage Girl Guide uniforms and buttons to make fabric flowers.
Girl Guides of Canada has made uniform changes over the years. The most recent change in the adult uniform was to replace the "stripes" - striped uniform blouses and skirts designed by Alfred Sung in the 1980s. Over the past few years many people donated those previously loved uniforms to me. What to do with them? I stored them for ages.
