One of my craft passions is definitely creating flowers
and as we all know, wool felt is one of the best materials 
to use for many of the flower patterns.

However, wool felt can be a little pricey and a little more difficult
to find in local fabric shops.  While shopping in
a local fabric mill outlet the other day, I came across this pink
'melton' fabric and while it seemed quite thick compared to normal
wool felt, I thought I would try a small swatch of it.

My Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix die is my go-to die
when I am using fabrics for flowers. It cut through the melton
like butter and I am very pleased how the flower turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.
