Three New Felted Flowers

Today I was able to steal away enough time to make three new flowers.  Two will be available for purchase at my shop and the third is a gift for one of my son's teachers.  As I stated in an earlier post, all new felted flowers for sale online will have the purchaser option of choosing a hair clip or a hinge pin to be attached to the back of the felted flower at the time of purchase.

Marie Collection No. 25 - Pink Cashmere Felted Flower with Vintage Button (teacher gift)

Thank you for viewing!

New items!!!

I've completed the thank you note to coordiate with the train invitation for my son's birthday this month.  I think it's adorable.

Below is Marie Collection No. 22, a felted pink cashmere flower pin with vintage white button.  It's a petite pin for my husband's aunt.  She asked for a pin for Christmas, but I think she'll be receiving it for her birthday in August.

The hat below will be added to my shop today for purchase.  I made it from pale blue organic cotton yarn with a brim to keep the sun out of your little one's eyes.  It features three double flowers in pale blue and pale green organic cotton.

I purchased hair clips over the weekend that I plan to attach my flowers to - giving the option for the purchaser.  Look for this option with new flowers that I create and post at my shop.

A few new projects

Today I created the birthday invitation for my son's birthday.  He's crazy about trains, as you can see!  I'll be designing a thank you note to coordinate.

I'm adding this birthday card to my etsy shop this evening:

Cute as a Button Birthday Card

I am finishing up on a sunhat for a toddler girl, adding a couple more flowers.  Photographing should be done by the end of the weekend and I'll be posting pics.  It's called Blue Skies Sun Hat and it's made from organice pale blue cotton with organic pale green cotton accent flowers - same green as in my Irish Eyes baby cloche.  I'm measuring the interior circumfrence for sizing, but I believe it will fit a 12-24 month toddler girl.

This week I started crocheting a unisex crib blanket using triple strands (one white, one pale yellow, and one baby green).  It's in super soft acrylic yarn and will be available online for purchase sometime this summer.

I have plans for an acrylic baby girl's crib blanket in double strands (one pink and one purple).  I'm in the planning stages for another toddler girl sun hat (in yellow cotton) and an adult woman cloche and either scarf or cowl I'm naming Dreaming of Sugar Plums (in superwash merino wool).

These pieces will be sold separately at my shop in the coming months.

Please email me at to request custom orders for cards, invitations, thank you notes, pins or crochet items.  Costs depend on quantity and how elaborate the design you request.
