I like to hand sew as much as using the machines.
And this is a little make I did one morning out of oddments of felt.
I decided to make some felt flowers to put in one of my milk bottles.
First I made some cardboard templates.
Then I cut the same out of coloured felt. And decorated with a bit of stitching.
I choose a button for the centre of the flower.
I used these for the stalk. I had to twist two together to make it stand.
I love using glass jars for storage.
Each circle I stitched.In contrasting threads.
I joined all the layers togeather with the button.
I added a circle of felt to the back to hide all the stitches.
Then I made another, This time with cut out edges.
Now they are growing. Here is two and today I made another. A completely different shape.
Do you like my little milk bottle. My daughter brought me four of these a few years ago.
They even have screw on lids. So sweet. I have used them for lots of displays.
