Felt for the Allergy Prone

A girlfriend asked me the other day, "So what happens if you get a customer who is allergic to wool?".

I didn't really have an answer for her...until I made up this little guy. He is all acrylic and cotton. Not one speck of wool in there. I needle felted in the details.

It is constructed a little differently than my other flowers, and I think it looks sort of like a Cosmo. Truth be told, it was inspired not by a flower in my garden, but by a flower on my vintage 1940's apron.

You can see the blue and mauve flowers in the photo, if you look hard enough.

I think they are cute, and I am going upstairs to the studio to make some more.

Also felt for the vegan (which I am not) but if the rest applies you might want to use that as a tag!

Oh...Marissa you are a genius (as usual). I hadn't even thought of that! And yes, it does apply in this case.

it is always a plus to offer such cute flowers for those who don't do wool for whatever reason! and these are pretty-darned cute :)
