Yesterday I worked on different patterns for felt flowers I plan to make, starting with a Poinsettia to remain in the Christmas spirit.
I think it would make a lovely candle holder or coaster.
I may add golden sprinkles to it.
Note: Poinsettia is known as "Christmas Star" in Italy, how appropriate!
I think the same pattern can be used for a Water Lily as long as lighter colored felts (example pink or cream) are used for the petals and the leaf pattern is changed.
