So, I think I’ve found my new “go-to” flower for my tote bags. I LOVE these felt flowers. I did a tutorial on them here, but when I did, I was kind of thinking they might not be “fancy” enough for my bags. When I was making a batch of bags last week, I thought I’d give these flowers one more shot- and boy-howdy am I glad I did.
The new “go-to”Posted on December 14, 2010
I used a little longer piece of felt (I didn’t measure it, but I’d guess it was 72″) and about 4″ wide. I like that the flowers are large and full, but don’t stick out too far from the bag. I also like that being made of felt, they’ll hold up to lots of use and “love”. 🙂
I also made some by just cutting the felt without folding it. I like the spiky look especially on the smaller totes.
I’m getting carried away with them, and made up some extras because I was having so much fun. Anyone want to take one off my hands?
Have a great day!

That's a lot of felt! I can't believe how full those flowers are. I've said it before, and I'll say it again… your totes are amazing!

Oh my, the cream one with the folded felt is so stunningly beautiful!

Those are fabulous flowers. I absolutely love them and they are perfect for your bags. AND I haven't seen them all over blogland — so original!
