Mothers Day!

Well its the night before mothers day and I have finally finished making the rest of the pressies. Must admit I have cheated with the cards but in sure the pressie will make up for it.
Im liking my new flowers with the polymer clay button centre. It adds something different.

I love all your work.
My name is Katherine, live in New Zealand and I met you in flick
I'm starting on the felt, because I find it wonderful.
Now I'm trying to do my first flowers for my mother, who is in Chile.
I wonder if you can help me?

My English is not good, I apologize if my message is clear.
Thanks and congratulations I admire your work

No worries Kathy and thanks for your lovely comments.

As for the flowers you need to shape them - slightly felting the circle first, then pick up the felt and grab the centre of the flower and make a cone shape with the rest of the felt. Twist it so it looks like a sausage. Roll centre if the circle (end of the sausage which is closed) on your mat. This will then felt that end into a point. When you open the flower it will have shaped in to a funnel, ie like a flower.

I hope that you understand this. Happy experimenting!
