Today is my day over on the Timeless Twine blog!
I can't believe my time with them is coming to an end. December is my last month as a Design Team member over at Timeless Twine.
I'm trying to think outside of the box for my last couple of projects, I have to tell you, today's project has to be the most expensive and time invested project that I've ever done. More about that in a smidge, check out my project first:
I love all the hoop art out there!
The possibilities are endless!
I used my stash of Jolee's and Prima felt blooms.
The "Love" has been hand stitched using Timeless Twine Natural.
I used an Amy Tangerine template as my guide.
I'm a flower girl, have tons of them BUT don't tend to use them on my projects. So when I saw this beauty, I was inspired! Then I saw this project and knew that I wanted to combine the inspirations!
I went to Ben Franklin to buy a small wreath that I could alter and add prima blooms and felt leaves. Um, almost $100 later, I came away with a wreath that expanded over 12 inches. I thought, I can do it. I have a skein of white yarn that one of the kids bought for a school project and used a couple inches.
I basically quit winding the yarn around that ginormous wreath after 30 seconds (if even that long!)...yes, I'm a quitter.
So then I was on a mission to use felt blooms but make my own green felt leaves.
If you follow me on FB, it was a huge ordeal for me to look for my supply of felt and in the end, I ended up buying green felt at Impress.
So, in all honesty, after that massive hoopla about the green felt, I didn't even use it!
BUT, I can honestly say that I love how my project turned out. Gray is my Favorite color...it's a staple in my wardrobe.
If you made it all the way down to here, you are a rock star! I'd love for you to pop over to the Timeless Twine blog and say Hello!
