Polymer Clay Flower Ring. I seem to make these flower rings a lot. Some of my scrap canes make very good petals and this is a way to use them.
A friend of mine sent me this idea to use for TAD. The instructions were for hair clips, but I’m thinking in the future of scattering a bunch of them over a black scarf. These are so little they are
This flower is a variation on the one from yesterday. I made the loops for the petals bigger on this one. I like this one better than the other one.
I drew a flower with sidewalk chalk at the bus stop. Nobody asked me what I was doing.
Still with the ikat stuff. This time a fibula. Oh all right…a pin (or brooch). These were known as fibula in ancient times and I rather like the word.
I used to make paper flowers when I was little and it appears that I have forgotten how to do it. The ones I used to make were far less twisty.
(Say that three times fast!) I added a bead to the middle of this little mum for a bit of sparkle. Be blessed.
Yet another flower where I just kind of winged it. It will be interesting to see how all these come together in my next flower crown. This one is the largest I’ve made so far, its slightly smaller than my hand.
Another experiment with the mums, I used pinking shears on the petals to give them a tapered edge.
I don’t know what I would call this flower, it is modeled after a vintage floral print from one of my suitcases. Whatever it is, it’s pretty!
I know I made a piecaken already over the weekend, but it just didn’t sit right with me to abandon my theme, so I made two felt mums to make up for it.
After how well my first flower crown turned out I’m inspired to make more. So today I was able to whip out three little blossoms.
For day 16 I consolidated most of the flowers I made this month and sewed them into a flower crown. I just ADORE how this cam out. (Click on the picture to see more.)
I’m getting quite the collection of flowers! I think I have enough to put together at least one generous flower crown. This one is SUPER simple, just a circle folded in halves and stitched.
Drawing on the techniques I’ve been using for all the other flowers this month I improvised these two violets for days 11 &12. Violets happen to be the February flower and stand for faithfulness, humility and chastity.
A little experimentation led to this less than perfect crocus, but it will be a nice addition to the flower crown it is meant for anyway.
Day 9 is another poppy, this time in red. I really love this one as poppies are my favorite flower.
This little mum was deceptively simple. Making these flowers so far has been doable and a lot of fun, I may just have to continue with this theme! (And I’m getting quite a beautiful collection of them!)
Day 7 is my very favorite flower, a poppy. Hand sewn in wool/polyester felt.
I played catchup this week since our weekend was very busy. Days 04, 05 and 06 are a grouping of these sweet felt Buttercups.
For today, day 5 I’ve made a quit simple headband from ivory lace with a felt flower attached. I’ve chosen this because it’s easy to make and like I’ve told you this weekend I will be a little busy! kiss,
Today I made a bracelet: I started with a strip of frayed denim torn from an old pair of jeans. I took a silk flower with all the plastic bits removed, placed it on one end where I
“A rose by any other name….”
I hand stitched this rose together today. I’m making a felt flower every day for the first week to be put together on a flower crown. This one is the prettiest so far!
I spent most of today out of the house, running errands and hanging out with friends so I put this violet together early this morning.
Hi, On day two I’m still excited about this project. I started working with something in my mind and I finally got to make a gift wrapping decoration. I wanted to create something precious and elegant, a golden flower with
The sun shining into my office in the afternoon continues to inspire. Which is a good thing considering I have no plan, other than to wing it day-by-day!
For week one I decided to make a felt flower every day, eventually I plan to gather them together for a flower crown. Day one is this pretty mustard yellow peony.
