~Felt Flowers~ {take 2}

Just a quick update, or "take 2"! I was experimenting a little with the shape of the flower petal and I tweaked it a little to look like this:

As you can tell it came out a little bigger than the other one, and this is how the flowers
turned out:

{This picture is a little blurry, but it is the best one I could take!}

I think they came out better than the others. They were fuller, and the petals looked more pretty. Overall I think it just came out more realistic looking! And, instead of a large circle in the middle I just used coordinating thread and made a small dot in the center as you can see!
Again, I hope you will try this, and personally I am very happy with how my little "experiment" came out! =)
Have a great Sunday tomorrow! Our church has a wonderful service, then a Thanksgiving meal and a praise service where we just share testimonies and sing favorites! Its so much fun, and a real blessing!

Hi Bethany,
I followed your link from Sara's blog. I was wondering how many layers this is? Is it just the 2 layers?
I attempted to make today but couldn't figure it out. I really like the flowers though!
I am not crafty at all but I've been making things with felt since I saw some ideas Sara had shown!

Hey Cory,
I'm sorry my directions weren't very clear! =) But you just cut out four flowers from the pattern that I showed you a picture of and then you fold each flower in half and you put them together like the flaps of a box! (haha) Okay, that probably wasn't clear, but if you go to my original post about the flowers there is a link to the place where I originally got the idea and she has a much better explanation! Hope that helps!!!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
