Handmade Fabric Flowers by Natalie Stawsky

Natalie Stawsky

My art is made of flowers. I use different kinds of fabrics to create colorful hair pins, headbands, head wraps, rings, scarves, earrings, and accessories for skirts, shoes and lapels. Each piece is made by hand and unique.

I started making flowers to adorn my daughter’s hair or to add color to a pair of old shoes. Working with fabric, the process of selecting, cutting and sewing became my meditation.

Earth laughs in flowers, said Ralph Waldo Emerson. By spreading flowers unto people’s heads I bring the spring even during the coldest winter days, and I give our Mother Earth more reasons to laugh.
