New Stitched Tweed Flowers.

The layered, stitched flowers that I made for the Summer were very popular, so I wanted to make a Winter version. I made these flowers this week.

Instead of cottons, I layered tiny scraps of recycled tweed over felt to make the petals. I thought the various black and white tweeds were a great contrast with the bright coloured felt.

They have shiny, faceted black beads for centres which were taken from an old necklace.

Layering the black and white tweeds reminded me of layers of newsprint when working with papier mache.

I think these flowers go really well with my felt poppies, they`re both perfect for cheering up a black Winter coat.

My first wee batch went straight into Flux in Leith, but I`m going to make lots more, including some more muted coloured ones. It`s been a while since I`ve had time to make anything new, so I really enjoyed making these.
