I am not a jewelry person! Try as I may I just can’t do it! I’m trying! Trust me I’m trying but I still can’t pull it off like so many of you can! Layers and sparkles and bangles “Oh my!” I want so badly to make it look right on me but it rarely does. SIGH!
So to make up for my lack of fashionable “Frosting” as I like to call it, I tend to spice up my look with a fun hair accessory or playful pin I can slap on my chest to show off my personality!
Felt, good felt, is so fun to work with with! Vibrant colors, lush texture and bold prints! I fell hard for this Hounds Tooth and could not wait to use it!
To make a fun Felt Flower you need to gather good Wool or a.k.a. Felt! It’s sold in a wonderful variety at good fabric stores or on line. You’ll also need a needle and thread, card stock to make a pattern, scissors, glue gun and a Broach Pin piece.
First draw out petal shapes and stagger the sizes. Mine are 2.5, 2, and 1.5 “. The joy of folk art crafting is the hand drawn charm of pattern making! Nothing has to be perfect!
Free hand is wonderful!
Now you will stitch your petals together over lapping each petal slightly and finishing your stitching to create a circle. Repeat this step with your smaller petals so you have two completed petal layers.
So pardon my lack of jewelry my friends! I prefer flowers!
