For the love of Periwinkle

periwinkle pearl

Today’s headband features a flower that is a dreamy Periwinkle – also known as  Lavender Blue or to those who keep track of Pantone’s Color of the Year, very similar to their Serenity. I secured a small pearl to the center of the flower and placed it on a bed of two green leaves. As always, each piece was folded and stitched by hand. Usually I choose a contrasting color elastic band, but for this piece I decided to continue the soft dreamy colors and used a silvery gray.

It is extremely difficult, if not near impossible to stitch the embellishment by machine – I’ve tried. But the end result is well worth it! It’s definitely been an exercise in dexterity.

I will be making more of these in the future, so be on the look out 🙂
