I'm posting this a little early just to give everyone a bit longer to work on it, but with the okay from GraceO and Jane Doe our Felt a long for January is to be...
Why flowers you ask? Well you see, our very own Jane Doe is getting married in April and I was thinking that maybe it would be fun if she had a little Craftster love with her on her big day. I pm'd GraceO to see what she thought of a felt a long with the FO's going to Jane and she liked the idea. Then, I pm'd Jane to see what she thought. She is excited to have felt from all of us.
So now, on to the felting. Take your pick and wet felt or needle felt your flower. Or do a combination of both. It's up to you!
As for colors... (quoted from Jane Doe's pm to me)
Well, the main colors we're wearing are:
Bride: ivory (similar color to wool white)
Groom and Groomsmen: darkest brown
Accent colors include:
all shades and hues of purples
all shades of browns (from tan + beige colors -> darkest brown)
and a tiny bit of red and lemon yellow
There won't be a specific guide or tutorial to use. This time share your plans and your progress in this discussion thread. Ask for help, give help as we all work on wedding flowers.
When you are done with your flowery goodness, there will be a Gallery so that we can all fall in love with them. Then, we will ship our flowers off to Australia to become a part of Jane's fabulous day!
In an attempt to make it easy for people to send their flowers, US Craftsters will pm me (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=32225
) after posting their flower. I will then give you my address so that you can send them to me. I will make one big package to send out to Jane. For those of you who live outside of the US, as it will take less time for you to send directly to Jane than to send it to me first, so you will pm Jane Doe and she will send you her address.
Now for the important dates. We don't want a stressed out bride receiving her flowers the day before the wedding and not having enough time to do anything with them so I am asking that you have your flower in the mail to me (or her) BY February 2nd!!! There is a time crunch to make sure we get the flowers to Jane before her big day, so the earlier you can send out the better!Highlights
