Flowers galore- Part 1

After I saw a tutorial for a felt flower hair band on Me and My Boys by Ashley, the flower frenzy got me totally. OK, I got a bit distracted as I discovered the idea for the felt necklaces and hair pins but that is not so bad because all of this distracted me enough from making some more hand puppets for the door frame theater (I will make some more in the next weeks) and brought me to yet another idea of making a hair bow- hair clip- necklace organizer. I already made the sketches and will try to finish it in order to enter the project for the CSI Weekly Challenge on the 14th of August.

But back to the flower frenzy. Ashley posted this nice tutorial for a lovely head band with singed edges. I tried this, but unfortunately I did not have synthetic felt on hand, only 100% wool and therefore could not singe the edges, but I like how my (actually Tina's) hairband came out.


So then I goggled the phrase“flower tutorials“ and found some cool tutorials on organza and satin flowers.  Thank you so much to Me and My Boys, Little Birdie Secrets, Hello- Refabulous and Homemaker on a Dime for the great tutorials and the inspiration. I am having fun!

This is what I came up with and the links to the great tutorials that inspired me.

 This flower I made into a brooch and I think I am going to keep it for myself:)

I also made some sort of singed organza balls and a jersey fabric ball using the pom pom maker from clover. I do not know yet what I am going to use them for, but I think that they are cute.
