Hi everyone! I'm checking in today with another project I completed not long ago. Some of you who know me in person might be aware of this already: my birthday is smack dab in the middle of "birthday season" - lots of other people close to me have birthdays within just a few days of mine. So, while I always look forward to celebrating my birthday by taking it easy, I'm also usually engaged in some madness getting ready for all of the other birthdays in my circle. This year, I decided to make a gift for my closest co-worker, whose birthday is just two days before mine.
I knew I wanted to make a wreath.
I wasn't keen on using faux flowers, so I did some googling to see what my choices were. It didn't take long for me to settle on making rosettes out of felt.
blog posts with instructions for how to make these flowers - I won't bore you with another one. Basically, you cut the felt into a spiral and then roll it back up. What I can tell you is this: you might see instructions encouraging you to trace a spiral onto your felt, or at least, cut out a circle before free handing your spiral. I didn't do either. I cut each felt sheet into squares and then cut the spiral just using my eyes and a pair of fabric scissors.
