I hope I am in time for a challenge I found this thanks to Wynn from the CD Sunday Challenge, I saw it on her blog and thought I could do something, The challenge lasts for a month and as I do a lot of tatting I thought I would try something new, so I hope this will be Ok. This month their challenge is anything but a card.
So I have made these felt flowers, I only got my die cutting machine at christmas so I am limited in what dies I have but I brought this die recently, so I tried to cut the flower die out of felt.
Hence it worked and here's a picture of the cut shape
Next I folded the middle to make the rose and then sewing stitches very small gathered up the rest of the felt into a flower shape
Sorry the white does not show up as much as I would like so here's the finished flower with a pearl in the middle.
Close up below.
The picture at the top shows a few I made in various colours.
This was for me an experiment with the die cutting machine and felt, I think it worked and I will be making more of these flowers, I did use a thicker piece of felt and it did not cut as well so in future I will make sure its thin felt for these flowers.

Hope the sun is shining where you are
