Making Cherry Blossoms & Forget-Me-Nots

I've been quite busy the past couple of days with lots of computer-based tinkering. I've been getting lots of important stuff ticked off my to do list (yay!) but I've not been doing much that's especially blog-worthy (boo!).

My main crafty project this week has been slowly cutting out lots of felt flowers and leaves. As always, all these pieces are cut by hand so they take a while...


I'm making forget-me-not brooches, cherry blossom brooches and cherry blossom headbands.


The cherry blossom trios are currently only available in pink, but I'm hoping to get some white & peach ones (like this single blossom brooch) sewn and listed soon. I almost got a couple sewn last night actually, but I wasn't 100% certain that the thread I'd picked up was actually peach so I thought it best to wait until daylight to double check!

All your work is AMAZING. Do you use a machine to do the flowers? I see them so perfect that I can't believe you've made them with your hands and a scissor!!! :-)

Thankyou! xx

Lucía - I don't use a machine, I cut all my felt shapes by hand using a pair of embroidery scissors :)

Lots of lovely cherry blossoms out in Australia at the moment as we come into spring. I love them.
