One of the things I love most about my life as a wedding blogger is stumbling across amazing little craft businesses – and I spend far too much time on Etsy! May I introduce you to someone very special today? Lovely Emma at Hapitat makes these wonderful recycled floral hair accessories using recycled and vintage fabrics. Aren’t they beautiful?
Emma discovered her talents when she made her first giant floral hair accessory out of left over silk from her homemade wedding dress. “My signature huge silk flower headpiece was born, and I’ve been creating beautiful handmade flowers, giant and small and in-between ever since.”
I use recycled fabric new and vintage, I scout charity chops, vintage fairs, garage sales and car boot sales for old clothing fabric feathers and lace that have been unloved and unused. I create beautiful timeless headpieces that can start a new story of their own.
Emma also writes monthly features for UK Craftseller magazine, does regular craft shows in the Buckingham area, and travels around the UK festival scene with her Hapitat recycled flower fascinator workshops where people can lean how to create wonderful headpieces and accessories. I wish I was as talented as this wonderful lady! Do investigate her Etsy shop – there’s so much more to see that I didn’t have time to share with you here!
