and purple, I am trying to break out of the pink theme but it does look lovely with grey.
There is very grey weather out there today, so pink beads and a felted flower
was just the thing for cheering up. I made seven though and by the end was a
bit sick of poking a hole in my finger with the very lethal beading needle.
I started making these flowers when I was thinking of embroidering a pink flower onto the grey pinstripe fabric I bought recently, there was something about the grey wool that needed a little injection of something different. So while I was trawling through some boxes I found these curls that I bought from Fyberspates. I thought they looked exactly like some kind of mad chrysanthemum so I needlefelted the middle onto a piece of felt then sewed on a brooch back to attach to the bag.
This bag is brown lined with silk, just the thing for holding knitting….
I am feeling like a little production line…..so next!
