Felt Flower Frenzy

Done and posted! Four felt flower crowns destined for Spiral Garden. If you are in search of a fabulous toy from natural materials, please do check out the beautiful Bel's shop, Spiral Garden.

Goodies for me
Lots of knit goodness. Yes, it's only solids, but lovely nice basics. Although you must know that any fabric that is white now will not be when it leaves my house! One of those rolls is a nice organic rib knit. I'm a tease and you will have to wait and see what I am going to do with it.

I didn't photograph my other two rolls from last week when I went walking through Surry Hills with two rolls of white fabric in one arm and dragging a toddler along with the other arm back to my car which was parked in front of the cafe where I was meeting my friend, Ed. My lunch was good and the coffee was rocking. I won't rant about the person who parked me in. Thankfully the person parked in front of me left 5 minutes before I needed to go.

Next to come...I finally finished the baby blanket for my friend who had a baby back in June. It's not like they've gone without a pressie. I made the little man the monkey outfit, but I just had to make him a silk flannel blanket similar to his big brother's.

Those felt flowers are beautiful Sara!! Do you get the felt from winterwood? I should make some for my girls, they would totally love that. And fabric by the roll, must be the way to go! Organic cotton is so soft and beautiful.

Gorgeous flowers Sara, do we get to see the crowns? I'll bet they look fantastic!

Thanks Naomi! The felt came from a felt place in Botany. It's not really cheaper than Winterwood, so would just get felt from there. I dyed all the felt myself.
