Black is back...


I'm not really a black and white kinda girl - but when a local customer from the farmers market recently requested a black and white button moon bloom I knew it would be a challenge. I tried it out and this is what I came up with - this bloom is called 'Mono' and it is sooo dramatic! Its about 3.5" diameter and the big white pearly button is roughly 2" so it really makes an impact when worn on white and other bright colours.

I'll definitely make another in this style but perhaps I'll add white stitching for contrast and some splashes of brilliant white on the lower petals...oooh maybe stripey like a zebra!

... so here's to customers who make you think outside the box! ;)*
