Wedding Flowers

Another kind of show and tell today, this time featuring a batch of felt flowers I made as a custom order for a wedding earlier this year.


I was thrilled to get a follow-up email from the buyer this week, with lots of gorgeous photos from the wedding...



Seeing these pics really made me smile, the wedding looks so lovely and I'm so delighted that my work played a part in such a great occasion. Honestly it makes me want to develop a whole wedding range!

How beautiful! The wedding flowers look just stunning. What a thrill you must have got seeing those pictures. I am just a new reader to your blog and hope to be soon crafting with felt. You mention not giving away 'trade secrets' on your blog. I understand that. But do you give us them in your book? I am quite a creative person but felt is new to me - except as a school girl! I would buy your book to give me help, guidance and practice with the know-how side of things even more than for the designs, beautiful though they appear to be, having looked through it on Amazon.

Incidentally, do you really never ever use cutting machines? That is something I read and was a real plus point for me as I really do enjoy to work by hand (a rotary cutter puts me off patchwork and I would rather use scissors even if it takes longer). I hate the idea of having to buy lots of tools to get started too. I think your cutting is so precise - perfect in fact. Often you can tell when felt is cut free hand but you can't with your work.

Anyway, I am really enjoying your work and love what you sell in your shops. Unfortunately I came across you just a bit too late for my felt but all being well with felty things I will need more soon. I have ordered your threads though as the colours looked so pretty.

I know this is an old post but I am enjoying having a good look through your blog and this seemed as good a place as any to comment as I loved your pictures.

Hi Sara,

Thanks so much for your sweet comments!

My book does contain a "how to" section, with tips on cutting out felt shapes and guides to all the stitches I use in the book & how to sew on all the embellishments and findings.

I really do honestly cut all my shapes out by hand! I have had a lot of practice but I also use a small, sharp pair of embroidery scissors to cut a lot of my shapes - the small blades make a huge difference in the accuracy/detail of the shapes you can cut. They're the only bit of "specialist" equipment I recommend people buy when starting felt crafting.

I hope you'll enjoy the book if you do end up buying it :)
