Anyway, as I usually do, I put on my thinking cap and started looking at ways I could change it up a bit, and came up with the idea to cut scalloped circles from the felt using my cuttlebug and Spellbinders dies. I made one, two, three, and now I'm on about # 20-something! They are easy and soooo cute! Here are the ones I have finished - and yes, they are all attached to cute elastic pony tail bands!
|A Garden of Felt Flowers!|
Aren't they adorable! I hope to do several shows this year, and think these should sell pretty well. I hope to make more as the pony tail bands and some as pins that could be pinned onto a jacket, bag, hat, etc.
|Shades of pink. The darker pink is actually more of a coral-pink than the hot pink they appear in the picture.|
|Any football fans out there? Can you say Tennessee Vols and Auburn Tigers???|
|Ivory with turquoise vintage buttons!|
|I really love this pink one with the vintage red button!!! |
|And this red one with a vintage pink button. |
I cut up a bunch of the circles in two sizes and keep them in a zipper bag in my sewing bag. They stitch up fairly quickly.
My plan is to make up lots of the flowers in different pro and college sports teams colors. Do you have a special team you would like to see represented in my garden? Email me and let me know and I will try to get some made up! These will be selling for $2 each for the small (approx. 1 1/3" across) and $2.50 each for the large (approx. 2" across). Anyone who is interested in either pony tail bands or pins can email me at lifeatcamelliacottage(at)gmail(dot)com!
So tell me, what do you think of my garden full of felt flowers???
Be Joyful Always! Becky
