Felt flowers to the rescue!

I did something stupid.
I melted a hole in my prom dress.



To appease anonymous blog readers and my mother (and lessen the likelihood of wardrobe malfunctions) I took down the hem on my micro mini dress. All was going well until I tried ironing out the crease. I started off really safe, using a damp tea towel and low setting, but it wasn't working so I started getting frustrated and kept turning up the heat...



Disaster! But all was not lost...


Princess Lasertron's felt flowers to the rescue!



I originally ordered the materials to make a headband and matching boutonniere but they turned out to be just what I needed to patch my dress.



I put three flowers on my dress and I still had enough pieces to make some accessories too.

boutonniere for Chris
wrist corsage and hair clip for me

We had a blast at Promdemonium and I can't wait for next year!

Wow. I am pretty sure I'm not crafty enough to be reading this blog.

What an awesome way to fix the dress.
