This is the 500th Felted Flower


I thought for the 500th flower that I would make something elaborate, never done before, and totally amazing, but as it turns out it is a cute small flower just under 2 inches.

I decided to keep this 500th flower as a record of my huge endeavor in needle felting. I sent it to Abby to put in her hair.
