These stunning silk flower pins add a touch of elegance and “wow” to a simple sweater, purse, tote, or hairstyle. They’re made by using fabric ink to stamp vintage images on silk flower petals. Several different flowers are used to make a composite piece. The pins can be used to dress up a tote, handbag, headband, jacket or sweater.
