Autumn Flowers

Amelia\'s felt flower

The girls and I have spent part of the weekend making more felt flowers, woolly blooms that are most suitable for this cooler weather. That is to say, I spent the time actually assembling them, and the girls helped me with colour choices (I had a bit more influence over Michaela’s choices, truth be told). They also both loved sifting through the button treasure trove, that Amelia won, for suitable buttons (Amelia is a very good sharer). I love the way the colour of the felt brings out the colour in Amelia’s eyes.

This darker purply-blue one of Michaela’s is my favourite.

Michaela agreed to model it for a photo, but was keen to make sure that we were putting it away for her friend.

Today I sewed up a lovely little “handbag” for Maddison, that I hope she will like. Tonight Michaela decided to model it as well, even though she was in her PJ’s.

If Maddison likes it as much as Michaela, I think it will go down just fine. I think I will have to get started on one for Michaela next.

One thought on “Autumn Flowers

  1. Oh what adorable flowers – the petals are beautifully styled Claire! And I love the one Michaela is wearing that has the layered middle. What a lovely way to spend the day! And the bag is very sweet – perfect for little people to carry their library books and ballet costumes etc.
