I've attended two crafty events recently (ok, like in November)-with organized crafts and teachers-they were both SO much fun. They are put on by our church, and I went to my own, and my friend Kim's. (she lives in another town...it was so much fun to hang with her all day!) At that event we made some adorable felt flowers to go on grapevine wreaths. Honestly, I almost slapped pins and hair clips to them....but I decided my kitchen fireplace needed them more than I did.
We used various felt flower techniques and made some up as we went. I get most of my wool felt here. I love wool felt, it's seriously gorgeous stuff to work with, and once you get some you'll never go back to the craft felt. It is more expensive, but oh so worth it.
We made these adorable pom pom necklaces (and some headbands) at the event held in my town, and I love how it turned out! I used grey knit, exactly like in the tutorial...I guess imitation was the sincerest form of flattery in this case!
