Memory Bouquet

Memory Bouquet

Although I’m not “officially” back until Monday, I was just finishing up a project for Fairy and I thought I’d share a little. Last year Fairy was in her first dance recital. Tell me if there is anything cuter than a 3 year old in a tutu!!! I wanted to get her flowers… all dancers deserve flowers after a performance, right? Anyway, after giving it some thought, I decided that flowers die after a few days and there’s nothing left but stinky water! So, I started one of those “traditions” that I might come to regret later (Tim and I have 5 children… so far only 1 of them has procreated… what I do for 3 grandbabies now seems reasonable, if that eventually turns to 15+ these “traditions” may seem excessive!) Anyway, I decided instead of buying fresh cut flowers, I would make a felt flower to commemorate the big events in her life. Saturday is her 2nd dance recital and I’ve finished her 2nd felt flower. They may not look like much now, but just think how the bouquet will eventually look with a couple dozen flowers. When I return next week, I will have directions on how to make this flower, and slowly I will add to the bouquet. (I will also have pics of the adorable dancer with said flower!) Watch for it at the beginning of the week. Have a lovely weekend all!

  1. What a clever idea! I love the beading in the center of the flower. How hard is that for the crafty challenged?

    1. Nope. Not hard at all! The flowers are really very easy to make. The biggest problem was deciding how to attach the stem so it would be secure. Now that I got that figured out, the rest is a piece of cake!

  2. Those are beautiful! Can’t wait for the instructions (and the pic of the dancer, of course!).

  3. Very pretty! They’d make pretty brooches too! I love the beadwork on these.
