Close to My Heart Blog Hop!! Look at these New Felt Flowers!

Welcome to our Close to my Heart Summer 2009 Idea Book Blog Hop! Over 40 Close to my Heart Consultants are celebrating the upcoming release of the Summer 2009 Idea Book by sharing their amazing creations using new products via their blogs.
If you want to start at the beginning of the blog hop, go on over to Erin's Blog and follow all of the links to see some amazing work form her and all of the other talented consultants!

These felt flowers come from the new CTMH Heart Felt Whimsy Die Cuts. In addition to flowers, there are birds, dragonflies, butterflies, buttons, swirls and much much more!

They are so simple to use. You can easily run them trough your sewing machine or just use a needle and thread. In addition they are even easier to attach with brads or conchos.
I will tell you that I didn't have much luck with adhesive or glue dots, but I have been told that there is a felt glue on the market! It is just too easy to use thread or brads to worry to much about glue! I also wanted to tell you about my 2 new favorite things. 1. Sewing-I got the Janome Sew Mini and I love it! It sews like a dream on fabric and paper! 2. Envelope flats-CTMH has a wonderful selection of all different sizes and the best part-you can stamp the inside of you envelope to match your project! How cool is that!

Here is a supply list for this project-
White Daisy CS, Garden Green CS, Buttercup CS, Tulip CS, Olive ribbon, Heart Felt die cuts, Tulip brads, Buttercup concho, foam squares, garden green ink, tulip ink, buttercup ink, Tulip CS, Floral charm stamp set, tickled pink stamp set, serendipity stamp set, envelope flats, white buttons
Other-Pen, green thread, canvas bag

Thanks so much for stopping by, and if you are "hopping" along with us today for the Close to My Heart Blog Hop then your next stop is Shannon has some really cute stuff using Tickled Pink and Tinkering!

Oh my gosh...look at those fun felt embellies! You did a fantastic job showing them off.

Congrats on the new mini sewing machine. I have a regular sized sewing machine that I don't use often enough because I have to lug it out to use it (no dedicated spot to leave it out). Now I'm wondering if I should look into a smaller one...sigh...
