Have you ever heard of proggy or clippy? No! If you would like to learn a new craft, then this new craft kit designed by MHW Millinery contains everything you need to make your own tartan ruffle corsage style flower, using clippy – which is also know as rag rugging – techniques and also introduces you to some basic millinery ones too.

The finished Lochcarron of Scotland tartan flower measures 3.5 – 4″/ 8-10cm across and features a contrasting half bow in millinery petersham. Your flower could be worn in the hair, as a brooch, or pinned to your winter hat or coat. With just the addition of a few basic pieces of equipment that you will find around the house, you will be able to explore my modern interpretation of the technique known as rag rugging, clippy or proggy matting. There is a choice of eight colourways of flower each with its own co-ordinating half-bow trim.

Please use the drop-down box below to select your colourway, there are additional images of each tartan option here for info as well as on my decorated beret listings which you will find in my British Craft House accessories store

Design concept

I really enjoyed developing the concept for the design of the flower which was inspired by our local rag rugging techniques, and uses Lochcarron of Scotland repurposed tartan fabric. Lochcarron tartan is woven just over the Scottish border from us, here in Northumberland. In addition to the kit listed here, you can see more images of finished tartan flowers used to decorate my range of wool felt berets in my British Craft House accessories store 

Wear and care guidelines

Once you have finished your flower please enjoy wearing it as a corsage, handbag accessory or to trim a hat. There are more ideas in the detailed instruction manual, contained in the kit. Your tartan handmade flower has a high wool content so is quite robust. When not in use please store your flower petal side uppermost, protected in a drawer, or if you pop it in your handbag when you’re not wearing it, you may find after a period of “lurking” in your handbag, that your flower needs a little TLC.

The best way to refresh your flower is to lie it flat, on the ironing board.  Hover over the flower with your steam iron, gently puffing steam over the entire flower and bow. Then gently reshape the flower and bow, remembering to lie the flower petal side uppermost, until dry. If your petersham bow points show a tendency to curl up, try steaming the points and gently pinning them flat onto the ironing board, with dressmakers’ pins until they are completely dry.
