Note for my German- speaking visitors
Liebe deutschsprachige Besucher, herzlich willkommen auf meinem Blog. Ich schreibe hier für Euch auch auf Deutsch. Deutsch ist nicht meine Muttersprache. Da ich die Sprachschule nur 8 Wochen besucht habe werdet Ihr manchmal Schreibfehler, falsche Satzstellung etc. hier entdecken - macht nix, oder?

Schmunzeln und korrigieren erlaubt!

Vielen Dank für Euren Besuch!

Some of the posts on this blog cover products that are sponsored. Sometimes I receive fabrics or other products at no cost to me. Despite this, all opinions are my own, and neither do I use any prepared text from the sponsors, nor do I get paid for the blog post. If I link to shops and products, I do so on my own will, and do not get paid for it. Most of the craft supplies I show or talk about have been purchased by me, or I have on my own will asked the company for a sample, and have not been required to blog about it.

Einige Blogberichte auf diesem Blog beinhalten Produkte
, welche ich kostenlos zur Verfügung gestellt bekommen habe. Trotzdem sind alle Meinungen, die in den Beiträgen geäußert werden, meine eigenen, und ich werde für diese Berichte nicht bezahlt. Desweiteren verwende ich keine von Sponsoren vorbereiteten Texte. Wenn ich zu Shops oder Produkten verlinke, dann tue ich dies aus eigenem Willen und werde dafür nicht entlohnt. Die meisten Bastelprodukte und Schnittmuster habe ich selber gekauft oder ein Muster angefordert, ohne verpflichtet oder gebeten worden zu sein darüber zu berichten.

Flowers galore - Part 4

This is the last flower post for now. To wrap up the flower frenzy (see posts: Part1, Part2, Part3)

I was experimenting a bit and have to say, that surprisingly some interesting stuff came to live.
The following flowers which I made into brooches are made out of fabric scraps which I mod podged with fabric mode podge and assembled with some scrap-booking brads. Underneath I added a circle layer of felt to which I attached a brooch pin. Using the same technique, I also made a hair pin. Mod podging the fabric prevents the fabric from fraying and it gives it almost a plastic look. The pin on the second picture right, is made from suede and a plastic bottle thingy from my recycled and not so recycled experiments.

The following hair pin was inspired by a design from a book FabricJewelry by Teresa Searle. I think that it would make for a nice brooch as well.

Another experiment with quiling of ribbon and combining it with felt. I find the combination of textures and forms interesting.

I love working with felt. I find the 100 % wool felt to be most pliable and durable. It is also naturally water and dirt repellent. Here an owl and pear hair pins. Making this pin inspired me to make some other shapes into hair pins, brooches and necklaces. I will show you those in the next weeks to come.

Last, but not least some experiments with crochet flowers. The top right one is a crochet border onto a piece of felt. I like the combination of textures in this one. I did not make anything out of those yet, but I had fun making them and will probably apply them to some sweaters, scarves and hats.

Lets see what my next obsession will be. Oh, wait a moment - Felt and wood necklaces and t-shirt refashions. Check back in soon to check them out.
