Felt Up.

Ok, so it's not as dirty as it sounded.
In fact, it's not dirty at all.
Sorry if you are disappointed.

I recently saw a post about a "Flower Power"  movement started by the Jafagirls, out of Ohio.  The Jafagirls normally partake in yarnbombing but decided to add some felt flowers to the mix to brighten things up even more.  Well, I wanted to join the fun, so I made a few to put up around here.

This is my first batch.  I'm waiting for a break in the rain to put them out...  When I do, I'll be sure to show you guys where.
A little run of the mill but hopefully they'll get more interesting as I go.  

It's a quick and easy project, why not make a few to put around your hometown?  The supplies are super cheap- all you really need is crafting felt and embroidery floss.  (I used Eco-felt, so they're "green" too!)  Also, you don't have to think too much about what you're doing so it's a nice break from a big project you may be working on.  Give it a try!  If you do, tell everyone about it here or here.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks again for the idea! I'm hoping it'll make people smile. I'm sure it'll piss off some grumpy person but that makes it even better!

Thanks for posting it on your page!

Laurie Anne-
Thanks so much! You should make some and beautify your town too. Your kids would probably think of awesome places to put 'em.
