These gorgeous creations have become very popular in the UK as most hospitals now do not allow fresh flowers to be taken in to the new mum. I first came across a baby clothing bouquet when my husbands company bought me one as a gift after the birth of my 2nd little boy 7 years ago. I wanted to keep it as a keepsake but after no sleep for a week, no energy to do any washing and no clothes left I sat with my baby asleep on my chest and spent an hour unravelling the clothing ‘flowers’. The clothing roses magically turned into bibs, a hat, socks and body suits . Now 7 years on I did not imagine for one minute that I would be supplying all our lovely customers with everything they need to make these themselves. I have included a fabulous tutorial which shows some of the techniques for making them yourselves. They can be quite fiddly so start off by making a few single roses with socks first so you get the feel of working with the different materials. For a basic sock rose all you need are the following to get you started nap0251, nap0346, gac0557. As you get more experienced you can experiment with bibs, bodysuits, hats and wash cloths. You can add quality foam roses, silk flowers, ribbons and picks to make it look like a professional florist bouquet. We stock everything you need including porto vases, tissue paper and bouquet collars for that finishing touch.
