V-Day Felt Flower Boutonnierre

✂️🧵✂️ Sanity through crafting! ✂️🧵✂️
While I wait for supplies to come in the mail for my next sewing project, I made use of my hot glue gun and some odds and ends to learn something new and make this boutonniere for my step-son for Valentine's Day. The pink felt is leftover from another project and the green started life as a protective layer for storing that came with a pan. Here's hoping he wants to wear it! 🤞

    That's fine looking work there. My mother taught me how to sew when I was a little boy. I believe it is a good skill to have. Who taught you how to sew?

      Thank you! I have long wanted to get into sewing, but never prioritized it. I was motivated last year to learn to use my machine to make fabric masks. I'm teaching myself and am just now attempting pattern drafting for more complicated endeavors!

        I'm happy about your enthusiasm. I have not learned to use a sewing machine. I sew by hand. However, my wife, and her mother, are very good at using sewing machines. I believe sewing is an art...

        I'm happy about your enthusiasm. I have not learned to use a sewing machine. I sew by hand. However, my wife, and her mother, are very good at using sewing machines. I believe sewing is an art that is beneficial to us all.
