Playing with Flowers & Gift from Vania!

My adorable niece turned ten years old and she asked me if I
could make her some accessories for her birthday present.

Instantly, I said yes of course and I knew I would have some
fun ahead of me in the process. I've been having such a great
time with felt again lately that I decided to use it for some
of the pieces.

I also had time to create a few extras in the batch that I
plan to put in my etsy shop soon.

Below is a felt flower I added to a fabric headband. I know
purple is one of her favorite colors. Mine too!

Stitching up goodies is always fun & relaxing for me.

I even made some flower pendants using canvas. Now you know I
can't stay away from painting something for very long. :) That's
why I enjoy mixed media so much.

And...Oh My Goodness! I also received my last OWOH gift in
the mail last week. Yay! It's the art doll I won from the fabulous
artist Vania of
Thank you so much Vania! I will treasure her always! :)

You can click on
the image to see
an enlarged photo
of her amazing
creation. I was
so happy she
permitted me to
use her photos
because I knew
my camera skills
could not do her
doll justice. Vania
is a professional
art doll sculptor
who has a magical
imagination. You
can find more
OOAK creations
from Vania's shop here.

Happy Friday to you all!

  1. I love your felt creations! You are so imaginative to come up with so many designs. Hand sewing always relaxes me, too. Whenever I am stressed, I sit down and sew something, then I am calmer. Funny how that works.

  2. Your felt flowers are wonderful!!

  3. Ooooo....Wow...your art doll is beautiful. She does make some amazing sculptures.

    Your flower hair pieces are really cool too!

    Happy Friday to you to.

    Bright blessings,

  17. Hi, Lisa! What a high compliment to be asked to make accessories by your 10-year-old niece! How wonderful! :-)

  18. Felt and flowers go so perfectly well together. I love what you made using just a handful of materials, and I especially adore the one with painted gold edges. What a lucky gal your neice is to have such a sweet aunt to make her one-of-a-kind accessories.

  19. Wow, Lisa. Your felt work is unbelievable. Such attention to detail. I don't know how you do it. That cottage you created is crazy cute! All the little stitch work on everything!
