Needle Felted Flowers Pattern


Here it is! My pattern for needle felting flowers. It is actually my first pattern. Nancy's Notions has it in their Early Winter 2010 catalog. It is also in several shops in the Salt Lake City area. I have to give special thanks to my family for their expert abilities in photography, graphics, editing, and general encouragement. Also thanks to Lora and Kathy at Nancy's Notions for their encouragement and help. (Click the title of this post to see the pattern in their catalog).

They are made from felted wool sweaters which I purchased from thrift stores or were given to me by family members. The pattern is on Martha Stewart's website.http://www.marthastewart.com/good-things/felt-slippers They have a template which I took to the copy store to enlarge to the various sizes I needed.
It was fun to decide how to embellish them. A lot of work, but a fun project.
