I hate to be ungracious. (Except I am.) I'm not the kind of woman who says, "this didn't come out well," so that everyone will tell me what I made is pretty. When I tell you it didn't come out well, there are great globs of glue on the front of the piece. It looks horrible in real life. I'm not fishing for compliments. If you can't see how bad it looks, there must be a problem with the photo. Whatever. Trust. Yesterday's flower looks like crap. If you really want, I'll send it to you so you can throw it away. But I'm keeping the rhinestone button.
Last night's attempt at fabric flowers of a completely different sort went a whole lot better. These, I love. I want to fill a vase with them. I did get four done in an evening which is just a few shy of filling this little vase.
There were some problems with the directions which call for "assorted sizes" of felt circles. You know what would be great? If we could develop a system where we might be able to share with others a relative scale. Perhaps we could make a stick that had units on them, and when I made something I could tell you the units I used. Of course, we'd have to regularize this measuring device. That would mean the government would be involved. Forget it, it will never work. (If you are willing to use the government's measuring system, I cut my circles to 1", 1.5" and 2".) (You know who else acts like we have no capacity for measuring? Papercraft Magazine and the card designers. The directions always say something like, "adhere squares to card front" and you have to guesstimate what size the squares are from the finished size of the card. Really pisses me off.)
