Spring Time Flower Garland

The daffodils in our yard are just poking their heads through the ground, but I was aching for some flowers, NOW, so I decided to make my own. You can make a garland or 2 or 3 for yourself, too. Hang your Spring Flower Garland up and you’ll feel like you stumbled upon an enchanted flower fairy garden. With a kiss of spring and a promise of warm summer days, bring the outdoors indoors with this lovely Spring Flower Garland.

Kite Applique Block

Yesterday we shared this month's Out of the Block project... a wooden kite made using today's Kite Applique Block. What is it about kites that excites us so? Is it the fact that a little paper, wood and string, can be transformed into a soaring vision? Or is it, that for just a little while, we feel like we can fly? No matter what draws us to kites, it is surely a sign of spring along with tulips, pussy willows and robins. YAY for spring :)

Out kite applique was made to fit on a 6" x 6" block, but it can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. When you are appliqueing your block, you can use the pattern to cut out the felt ties on the tail or you can use small pieces of woven fabric. The pattern for the kite can be found HERE. Enjoy :)

Frayed Fabric Flower

A couple of weeks ago I shared a sweater and hat I knitted for the Little Lady. (Leaving Thursday for a week long visit :) I wanted a little embellishment for the hat, and I made a flower using the material that I will be using to make her 2 pairs of reversible pants. Although I sewed the flower directly on her hat, you could easily add a brooch pin so it could be removed. I'm a little leery of sharp pokey things on toddlers :)

To make your own Frayed Fabric Flower you will need:

woven fabric scraps
felt scraps
embroidery floss
button
a copy of the pattern found HERE
brooch pin (optional)

Make a copy of the pattern. Cut out a woven print and matching felt for each of the three sizes.

Using a running stitch and 3 strands of floss, sew the woven fabric flowers to the corresponding felt flowers.

Stack the 3 flowers on top of each other with largest flower on the bottom and the smallest flower on top. Tack together.

Sew a button in the middle.
