And it’s a HUGE weight off my shoulders. With just a little over a month to go, I had put them off and off and off and I grew more and more worried! I had been making the flowers for them for months, but had yet to actually begin making them. So last week i finally buckled down and got started. Half way through the second one i ran out of flowers! (Queue Panic!) But finally, today, i have finished the last one!
Here they are all:
I made the flowers of out felt.
I personalized them with their first initial and a charm that represents them. J is a free spirit that no one will ever hold down.
S is a peaceful soul who can always calm me and is always there for me with a level head. She’s amazing!
N is “of the fey” as she will tell you and is all about magic and faries and love.
Man oh man i’m just so glad i finally got them done. I’ve sort of bitten off more DIY than i can chew and the clock is ticking! Now to start on the GM bouts and family corsages! Wahh!!!!
What do ya’ll think?

I absolutely love them. I love how you personalised them to each bm. I hope you don’t mind but I’m stealing your idea. Those charms and initials are just perfect. Great job!

They are beautiful and completely what I’m looking for for my girls bouquets! Did you use a template or how did you make them?

Thank you all so much!!! *hugs*
@Soon2BD-CBee: I don’t mind at all! Go right ahead! I got the charms off etsy and the inistials were an awesome random find at Michaels’s for a buck a piece! 🙂 I hope my ladies love them as much as I do!
@MrsErvin: I didn’t used a template, it was sort of trial and error. The roses were made sort of like this tut, http://www.howjoyful.com/2011/06/felt-rose-tutorial-and-pattern/ but i was way to lazy to cut them exactly and do all that sewing. I used the inner rose pattern and then just cut individual petals about the same size and glue-gunned them together. Then i glued wire stems to them and folded/twised the wire to make it sturdy and stuck them into a floral foam ball. The handles are these styrofoam tubes i found that originally had glow lights in them, i cut it to size and used some wooden kabob things to stick into the center and then stabbed the floam ball on it.. so.. yah, i sort of used random things and mashed them all together,. ~_~
