Thanks so much! As for the cone thing, I can’t remember what it was called. I’ll see if i still have the packaging, but i’m pretty sure i tossed it 🙁 Regarding the flowers, I made all kinds. I crocheted roses, made felt roll up roses, made fabric ones where you roll and twist. I spent a few days googling fabric and felt flower tutorials and used some of them as starting points, and made some up based on pics. The felt roses are made with this tut:
There’s literally dozens of flower tutorials out there, so you can pick and choose what you like best.
And for the shaping, i used a rounded floam sphere to hold the round shape. I tried it with out it and the middle flowes flopped in.
@Mrs.Hundley That’s a great idea!
@cbeyelia Thanks so much for the warm comments! Like I said to Jez, I just googled flower tut’s and then made them up as I went along. I didn’t bookmark any as i only need to make one or two to get it in my head, but there’s so many tut’s out there for every type of flower you can imagine.
@Cariad Thanks! Like i said in the post, I’m not done the handle. I plan on wrapping it with ribbon, but i wanted to thicken it first 🙂 I was just impatient to post!
@farmgirlnfarmboy Thanks so much! That’s also a great idea! I was trying to think of a way to keep it soft so that’s perfect!

Wow that is incredible!!! Amazing job, well done and it’s completely unique. I love the butterfly as an added touch and I don’t think it’s too rounded for a bouquet that is what we DIY bees strive for in a bouquet.

Very cute. I like the butterfly touch. 🙂
Here is a great (and easy) tutorial, along with another page showing how to make the flowers. Youtube has dozens of videos as well.
