Felt Flower Madness

On Monday evening as I went through Rubes's backpack I found another birthday invite. What to make? Sometimes my brain acts like a steel trap... an idea gets in and only by chewing off it's leg can it escape. The idea this time; a felt flower crown, composed of many little five petal flowers hand sewn together. The following video clip documents my little bout of insanity on Thursday night. The party took place on Friday (4 days) and just to add to the fun I had only my evenings free from 7:30pm on. Creative joy... yip, yip.

Friday morning I rushed around getting Rubes ready for school, Teo fed, dressed and happy, swim gear packed, finished the crown and took pics. By that time I had 15 minutes to shower and dress for work. Whew. I'd have liked for Rubes to model but seeing as she was in school, this is as good as it gets. Felt Flower Crown 2 What will I do when it's time to remove the Christmas tree from it's current out door resting place? Felt Flower Crown 2 There are 35 flowers on this beauty. Though I'm happy with the outcome I'm not sure if I was 100% finished tweaking it. There was too much gluing involved, even with all the brads. I've plans for the next one. I'd like to sew/embroider more on the flowers and peddles. Booaahahah...(sound effect). Felt Flower Barrette And since crown wearing in school is discouraged I whipped up a barrette for the classroom. I'm considering revamping a few of Rubes's plain white headbands with lil' flowers. After some rest.
