Christmas Corsage

Inspired by this e-mag, I made this Christmas corsage for my Mom. The sweater that was used is from an old sweater that my Mom received from my Dad for their first married Christmas together. (Yes, my Mother keeps all sentimental things) 50 years ago she got this sweater. It is in beautiful shape, but Mom and I are not small enough to wear it. So I asked her if I could sacrifice it to my crafting habit and of course she obliged.
The reindeer is a vintage piece from her collection that I added. I made the acorns from acorn caps that I glittered and then needle felted the nuts. It is sewn on top of a piece of linen. An hour later and we are in vintage heaven. She wore it today on her jacket. I will be making one for me for sure.
I will be back over the weekend with our Christmas Ornament Swap!
Hugs to all.
