Felt

I've been out of the card making for a bit. I've been finding it hard to make them lately for some reason. But, I've at least been doing some crafting with PTI supplies! In my last order, I got both Flower Fusion #2 and #3 and several new (to me) felt colors. I've been seeing several of the designers make hair things and lots of felt out in blogland and felt I needed to try my hand!

Sorry about the sizing of pics...I don't know what happened! Of course I deleted the raw images before realizing they're too small :( Anyway...the first clip is just on a barrette. It's one of those ones that are a triangle shape that snap back and forth. I cut out 2 Raspberry Fizz and 2 Hawaiian Shores Flower Fusion #3 flowers and sewed on a small button in the center then used my glue gun to adhere them on.


This one was a little more time consuming. Each "flower" took 5 of the Flower Fusion #2 die cuts. I folded each one in half, then in half again and hand sewed the points to a circle I cut out just a smidge larger than the original flower. I adhered to the headband with a glue gun and then put another circle on the other side to make a sandwich with the headband.


I also added a few leaves on the bottom flower...not sure if I like it or not, but I knew I didn't want all three to have leaves!

This one is harder to see...I may have to try and take another pic of it later. I found this awesome tutorial in my Women's Day magazine and had to try it. So super simple! I did it the way they suggest for the one below, but my center circle was too big to fit a button, so I made a third layer at 5" instead of 6". The top one, I wanted something different, so it's two layers and then two circles cut out with a True Black button in the middle and two leaves. The bottom one also has a pin and a clip on the back, so you can wear it however you want!


I'm pretty pleased with how they all turned out! I also made Lexi a pair of pj pants the other night, so I'll have to share those, too :)

Liz, I love the beautiful headband you created - especially having the little leaves peeking out - they add so much interest! Your flowers are so perfect and fluffy - and your daughter looks SO PLEASED :0) I'm not surprised!
