It’s the fifth day of craft month and I am still going strong. Whoo! Today’s project is brought to you by a tutorial for Fabric Dahalias from Holidash. I used this project as a test for some thicker, more wool like felt that I had laying around. I bought it for it’s beautiful chocolate brown color, but hadn’t found a project for it yet.
As you can see, my flower has a nice fluffy look, which I actually really like. It just ends up being a lot different than the finished project over at Holidash. I did find while working on this project that it was much easier for me to make a petal pattern for each of the sizes that I wanted and then cut the petals out individually, than to follow the directions on the tutorial. I think this was mainly because of my work style, and the type of felt I was using.
I should also note that since I didn’t use a contrasting color on the back, or make a pocket, I was able to do this with one sheet of craft felt, and without a sewing machine.
I’m considering attempting this flower again with a differnt type of felt. If it goes well, I may sell them in my Etsy store. Is this the type of thing you would buy?
