I'm knitting my bouquet (which can be seen here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280934.0) and needed something similar for the guys.

After some searching I came up with this pattern http://cards-by-paula.blog.co.uk/2008/01/25/how_to_make_a_felt_white_calla_lily~3630857 and had a go.

These are what I came up with:




I haven't shown these to any of the guys who actually have to wear them yet!

What do you guys think?

What a great idea.  I'm off to check out the links you left now.  I'm super curious about the rest of the flowers:)

Thanks fellow Craftsters!  I figured you can't really trust guys to look after flowers and I've heard real calla lilies can be expensive so I decided felt was the way to go.  The stamens are actually strands of wool that I've twisted together and felted but the rest of the flowers are just purchased sheets of felt.

I don't think it is just Calla Lillies....I think all flowers are fairly expensive.  Besides, I think it would be a nice souvenir.   Although, I don't know if guys save things like that.  I think my bf might, but that's just because he keeps everything.  Tongue

I'm afraid I'll be replacing these with satin flowers to match my bouquet - will post pics soon!
