It has snowed at least 18″ in the past 24 hours and it’s still snowing, but spring has sprung in our house. Last night before the impending storm, and shortly before losing power, I quickly stitched up some leaf and flower garlands to hang around our kitchen and dining room. (We have an open floor plan, so it’s all one space).
Last year I cut all of the felt circles for my snowflake garland myself, and when I first had the idea of making a similar springy one, I toyed with the idea of cutting my own felt flowers and leaves… but not for long. Without a die cut machine, I decided it would be much easier, and therefore more likely that I’d actually make these garlands, if I simply ordered the shapes on Etsy.
Felted Fringe had exactly what I wanted, with options for color customization, and extremely reasonable prices. Done and done. Without further ado, behold the springtime.
