I love thrift shopping and when I saw this cute bag for £2.20 I could not resist buying it, but i felt there was something missing so I made this embellishment corsage using some vintage lace (which was once attached to a pair of my grandmas curtains), ribbon, and pearls (from a broken necklace).
Using a glue gun I stuck on a small square of felt onto the bag and then stitched the corsage to the felt.
