While I was working up the flower for my Aqua Flower Handbag I came up with a great idea. I was remembering back to my Junior prom when my date gave me a corsage. I remember wanting to save my corsage for my scrapbook but, it ended up being all gross and it lost its color (eventually it got thrown out). Why not make a unique corsage that you can keep without having to worry about it drying up, losing it's color or getting too gross to keep. You can get the colors to match the perfect dress on that special night. I would have loved one of these that night. Hope you enjoy this pattern.
