I was looking for something to keep my hand busy in front of the TV
so I decided to try and put a dent in my felt stash and make some fab-u-lous felt flowers.
I've blogged about these fun flowers before here.
You can find the tutorial here.
This is what I've made thus far
all displayed on a cute little wire mannequin frame I picked up in the NEXT sale!.
I started with various shades of purple pink and lilac ...
I've got a nice purplish remnant in my stash
and when I make a bag from this I'll have no shortage of flowers to dress it up !
I got the flowery bug and expanded my palette a little ...
I think the green ones will make beautiful accessories for St. Patricks Day !
I've just finished a few small clutches and think these flowers look great on them.
The only problem is its too difficult to choose which colours look nicest!
I love this checked clutch above.
I also bought some black and oatmeal felt yesterday to make some more alternative flowers for it !
Hmmm! Adding to my stash of felt rather than using it up, typical me !
Hope your having a lovely New Year !
Thank you for visiting & come back soon !
