felt corsage tutorial....quick and easy :)


a little how to...make a felt flower wristband for you or your little ones or both :)
you will need

4 pieces of felt 
scissors
needle and thread
buttons 
ribbon

* cut out two circles...one bigger than the other and the size you want your flower to be

* snip into the circles and shape to make petals

*cut out two bow tie shapes for leaves


* place on top of each other 

* add buttons and sew through all layers to attach buttons



* cut ribbon long enough to wrap around your wrist and tie

* sew ribbon on at the back



done :)

or you could make the ribbon into a rosette style tie and add a pin to the back
and wear as a brooch like this ....

the end of term is almost here...it's always a bit of an emotional time I think, leaving classes...schools...friends and the anticipation of a summer of freedom, I have very happy memories of school holidays as a child I hope my boys will too :)

  7. Gorgeous! :)

    I agree about the end of term, although my kids are all grown up now I remember the slight sadness at the end of another school year. I think you realise how much they're growing up more so then than at their birthdays.

  8. As a teaching assistant, this year I gave the year 6 leavers' assembly a swerve. I always end up a snivelling. blubbing mess and the parents look at me as if I'm barmy! One note of One More Step Along The Way We Go (that's probably not the title) and I'm gone.
    Lovely tutorial and gorgeous colours.
    Happy Thursday!

  14. this is lovely, I love the colours - when I make flowers I always seem to use quite a limited palette, I'm going to mix it up a bit next time! Ta for the inspiration, have a great summer break! Rachel x

  15. Fabby corsage Jane!
    I'm still drying my eyes from the end of year assembly and I was leading it! For me it was singing The Beatles 'With a Little Help from my Friends'!

  19. This is so so beautiful- I love your choice of colours and buttons. Have a wonderful summer holiday. We are amidst a cold wintery term 3 of school on the other side of the world and it is so nice to see your summery sunshine. melx
