Saw you at Expo. You looked fantastic. Was too shy to ask for a photo though. :( Well done! :)

Flowered Choker (Posted 23rd March 2012) the original choker that I made from an old choker that I had turned out to be waaay too thin! So I butchered an old fabric headband of mine (stiffened it a little by sewing cardboard into it - this will hopefully make it strong enough to hold the flowers without creasing~) and ordered a few more flowers to pad it out.

The flowers should be arriving by the 28th and then I'll be experimenting with some velcro. :'D
