hey everyone,
i'm really not a very big flower person, so when it came to my wedding, i wasn't sure i wanted to blow a big part of my budget on them.  Enter: felted flowers!  now, i don't actually knit, but my sister does and she was totally into the idea so she made them for me!  can i mention that i have an amazing sister??  

we decided on tulips, after trying out 4 different patterns.  i'm getting married in may so tulips fit nicely into the spring feel.  we haven't felted them yet, but here's a link to my bio with all the pictures up to now:

Awesome idea! Smiley  They look amazing!  I didn't want to spend $$$ on flowers either, so I'm making all sorts... paper, fabric, beaded flowers.  Glad to see I'm not the only one!

I ordered flowers from fiftyflowers.com to save money.  I sort of wish I had seen this idea first.  I think it's a phenomenal idea!

All of the flowers are very pretty! Did your sis make up the shaping as she went, or did she follow a pattern?

jsumonkeygirl- she used a pattern.  it's a pickupsticks (i think) pattern.  they also had a mini tulip in the pattern.  i added new pictures since we felted them two weeks ago!  (just click on that same link!)

I love these so much. I have ordered the pattern. Not sure if they'll be my wedding flowers but as half my family is dutch I may well do :-)

I assume you have wire in the stems - do you put the wire in before you felt them?

Love, love, love these! Have just emailed to see if I can get the pattern sent overseas. Fingers crossed!
