Flowers for Mae

A couple of months ago I was bouncing around ideas with my sister for a birthday gift for a girlfriend, Mae. My sister said that Mae mentioned how she would like some of the billy balls and yarn poms for her office a while back and I thought I would make her a bouquet. She is the sweetest and kindest woman I know so I wanted to make them extra special for her. She loves damask and purple so I definitely wanted to incorporate all of it in the bouquet.

This one is made from silver damask print napkins from the dollar store and I glued a wool billy ball in the center.

The flower on the left is made from felt and I added a pearl bead to the center. I made the yarn pom poms on the right in purple and grey yarn and added some wool billy balls to complete the bouquet.

Here’s the final result before I wrapped it up and gave them to her when we went out for dinner at Guu. It was a wonderful night with great food and people to celebrate such a special day for a special lady!
