My boyfriend's mum has redecorated her bedroom and has gone with a white and gold theme, so I thought a good present for her would be something gold/yellow. I had some yellow felt and since she's such a keen gardener I thought a scatter cushion with a felt flower on it would be perfect. Since she's a clean freak I put the flower on a brooch back so that she can remove it when she wants to wash the cover, I thought that bit was ingenious!
I'm thinking if she gets bored of the colour scheme at least she's got a pretty brooch.
Speaking of felt and brooches, as I was on a roll I decided to try my hand at a different design. I'm really happy with the result and love the colour, so think these are going to make it to the present list for everyone!
I made this by cutting nine strips of felt about 2cm in diameter and then looping each strip four times and stitching to keep in place. Arrange them so they look like a bloom and stitch each set of loops together, once that's done attach an oval of felt to cover all the ends and stitches and to attach a brooch back to it. I fell in love with this one so much I had to put it on my kermit green raincoat this morning, it certainly brightened up my day!
Apologies no step by step photos, I tend to make things on the spare of the moment but will try harder next time as know I'm going to be making lots of these.
