Remember this broach from Not Martha posted at Holidash?
I made one from another felted wool sweater I have been saving for…something. Do you do that too? My husband is really patient with me for doing that. 🙂 I know…I am on a roll for ruining wool sweaters. I have one left…it’s pink. Let’s see how long it lasts.
Well…so I am sure that regular felt is easier to be more exact with…and ahem…if you are more careful about cutting, your flower will look more like a perfect dahlia and less like a ball of orange moss- my husband’s words not mine. 🙂 I would show you an up close…but I didn’t get one in time for this post. Just imagine the nice one above but a little messier. 🙁
Still I liked it enough to wear it for family pictures I tried to do myself. Really…not great.
See…kids aren’t looking. Sigh. My husband is trying to hold as still as possible because we were using a timer…oh what a lame picture.
edited to add: I got a comment about Reid’s little tie. Go to this post and you should find the link on how to make it there. It is made out of an old man’s tie.
I almost decided to hire out for someone to do them for us but decided I don’t really want all the fun extras that come with a full photo shoot this time. I really just want a family picture and a jumping picture for the Christmas card.
Plus I did get this “extra” that I like from the first attempt. It is probably the only picture I really like from our first attempt. Sigh…again.
I gave it another shot today at our house…
I am a big fan of pictures at our own home. Everyone is more comfortable and the location less novel. I think it really captures our family better to be at home in our jeans just having fun.
