Eco Flowers

I finally made something with the "ecospun" felt I ordered a couple of months ago...
... lots and lots of flowers! I'm really pleased about being able to offer an eco-friendly product (the felt is made from recycled plastic bottles) and the colours are very yummy, which I think makes for some very yummy flowers :)

Each flower is made up of lots of individual petals and topped with a vintage button from my stash, making each finished piece one of a kind. I was just choosing the buttons when I took these photosThe larger flowers are 12 cms / 4 and a half inches across and will become big statement brooches, and the smaller ones will be fascinators thanks to a pack of little plastic combs I bought last week.

How lovely! I really like the thought behind creating them - not only are they made from eco friendly felt, they are also a great showcase for some excellent and interesting buttons!

These are beautiful flowers, I just bought some of this felt the other day. If you don't mind me asking where do you buy your felt like that in bulk?

Hi Allison - I'm afraid I don't buy this felt in bulk, just retail by the sheet. I like this felt but don't use enough of it to buy it in large quantities!
