Felt flowers for the Unstampabelles challenge


 Hi,
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.
Here is a link for the Unstampabelles challenge
Hope the sun is shining where you are 
                                 Hugs
                             Margaret

  3. How fabulous! They look amazing - never thought of stitches. I usually get out the glue gun and get into a mess as a result! Tip of the day for me! Thanks for sharing your project with us at Unstampabelles.

  9. These are lovely. I usually use glue and like Susan end up in a mess! I have had hits and misses with felt when die cutting it is really trial and error! Thanks for sharing with us at Unstampabelles.
