a felt flower shop...


I love it when Joy tells me that she is going to make one of my children their birthday or Christmas present, because I know that it will be something extra special. She sent me through these photos of the gorgeous felt flower shop she has created for my little Jemima (who turned 4 over the weekend) and I think that she has excelled herself! She knows how much all my girls love to play shop and thought flowers might make a nice change from the food, books and shoes which often feature in their play. She crafted these flowers from felt, shaping the stems around drinking straws so that they don't collapse, and cut a variety of shaped petals and leaves to make different types of flowers. Joy let her daughter play with them as she was making them and ended up having to pack them away while her Sienna was sleeping as there were tears when Joy explained they weren't for her! Looks like she will be making some more...
