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.
This was one that we actually made for Michaela’s friend, Maddison, who is having her 3rd Birthday party tomorrow. She is a big fan of pink and purple, which was something we kept in mind as we were selecting her felt.
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.
