Felt Flowers Made Easy

Practise makes perfect, it's as simple as that!

I must admit that I am not a 'born natural' at anything! Yes, I'm a creative and yes I'm a perfectionist but my journey to 'perfection' involves lots of unpicking, redoing and re-cutting.  

Don't even get me started on hot glue. My Hot Glue gun and I have a Love/Hate relationship! I love and hate it in equal measures. It is indispensable but I also bare the scares of being burnt by it. Of course this is just a sign that I need to keep on practising using it, because eventually I will get it and never get another scare again.

As Adults we expect to be able to grasp something really easily. Once we have, we expect that we should somehow get really good at it quickly, because if we don’t we may give up and walk away, saying it’s not for us. It’s an enormous pressure to put on ourselves, especially if we are taking on something brand new. You have to give yourself permission to be imperfect, to make mistakes and learn from them. Otherwise, how on earth can we expect to get better?

Practising with Felt 3D Flowers

For most crafters buying a pack of £D felt flower pieces is their first step into making an alternative bouquet or decorating a wooden plaque and with it can come the fear of wasting money. Totally understandable. I’ve been there. I’ve felt the panic when something went wrong and I didn’t know how to correct it. I’ve come through the other side too! Well not with my Glue Gun !!! Not yet anyway!

My Top Tip

Follow the instructions I send you with each pack. Get used and comfortable handling the felt shapes. Roll then up, unroll them if you don't like the look, roll them back again and unroll them until its 100% perfect for you... and then...and only then, get your glue gun and glue the flower in place. 

Patience really is a virtue but well worth it!

Happy Making
