Flowers
So a girlfriend of mine asked me to knit her flowers for her wedding. So I knit a few different styles and the picture below is the style she chose. Oh and the model holding them is my daughter who was their flower girl as well. The flowers are knit using cascade 220 and then I felt them all by hand as my washer sucks for felting. I did eight for the bride, 3 for each of the two bridesmaids and then two for my daughter and four boutineers for the groom and groomsmen.

Your little on is really pretty.

Very original bouquet, don't think I've ever heard of anyone doing that before.

Oh, I love a bride who can "think outside the box".

How lucky she is to have a talented and skilled friend, who also has a very pretty little girl.
