The season of parties is upon us! A.K.A. the season of showing up with a bottle of wine. I always wish I had the time and forethought to bring a unique gift for the hosts, but I usually bring the wine. And hey, who doesn’t like to drink a little grapey-grape? However, I’ve finally made the special gift happen. Our good friends are hosting us for Thanksgiving (awesome!) and I’ve whipped together something for the hostess. I hope she likes her new felt blossom brooch!
I followed instructions on Purl Bee to construct the flowers. They have a downloadable pattern for cutting out the pattern pieces but I free-handed mine. I repurposed felt circles from a garland, hence the stitch marks. I cut them as follows.
See how the pieces come together over at Purl Bee. I sewed the bottom of each blossom to a light green felt circle, and I attached the brooch pin with hot glue.
Voila! A charming little gift for a splendid hostess. Oh, and yes, we’ll still bring the wine.
