I’ve been asked to make a ‘parcel’ for the game using some of the new birthday week sewing launches, if you take part in the blog hop you may be lucky enough to win my ‘parcel’…I adore it!!!
Now I know that sewing is my main hobby but I’ve always enjoyed crafting of most types. I’ve really loved making my own little bundle of flowers out of felt…and glue! Not a sewing thread in sight for this project and it was so much fun…apart from the sticky fingers!
I used the Threaders felt pack collection as I wanted to make really colourful flowers.I also used the Collall felt glue, I’ve not used this before and it was really quick and simple to use.http://www.crafterscompanion.co.uk/felt-glue-100ml.html
Once the glue had dried I used florists wire to make stems for each individual flower…that bit took a little while! Then I got a little bit creative and made my vintage style flower jug overflow with beautiful blossoms! Just to add a little bit of bling I added a few beaded bits and a butterfly for a final flourish…I love it!
If you’d like to have a go at making your own flowers, all of the supplies are available on the Crafter’s Companion website
I can’t wait now to use these flowers on actual sewing projects…watch this space!
Good luck in the blog hop!
Happy crafting, x
