A few weeks ago we I was browsing through a few craft websites when I saw some beautiful flowers crafted from woolen felt at Twig and Toadstool! I thought it would be nice to attempt some with the children so...we got busy!
We printed off the templates found here and proceeded to pin them to our woolen felt. I have since found an excellent source of 100% woolen felt for those of us folks here in Ireland, that don't want to have to import everything from the U.S! I will post separately in regards to this newly found treasure!
Amy and I got cutting and sewing (please excuse the awful attempt above!) my second flower was much neater in the sewing department! We had a blast making these and have used them in creating some embellishments to add to our handmade Christmas gifts! Amy used a bright yellow button on hers and it looks much more fun than the flower pictured; she also is using hers with a safety pin to attach it to her clothing for a bright and colourful accessory!
