Cheerful Spring Flowers

The other day I shared a picture of a small pile of wooly scraps. Well, here's the finished product. A couple of wool balls covered with colorful wool flowers. They were so much fun to make because of all the different colors of wool fabric and threads that I used.


I made two of them - one for a friend - and one for myself.





This was my inspiration piece that my friend Jayna recently bought at a gift shop.


I think I actually like my version a little better!

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY GAYLE!
I love these cheerful spring flower balls!
Fun way to use tiny scraps.
You could stuff it all in a ziplock and work on these while sitting on bleachers! lol
Enjoy
