My Not-So-Original Idea

The week after Christmas, I was thinking about making a felt flower.  So, I went to my Google toolbar and started looking up "felt flowers" trying to find some tutorials  I thought this might be easier than going to each of my favorite blogs and seeing what they had.

Well, I was wrong.

I literally went through pages of links. Yet still, I couldn't find quite what I wanted.  So I pulled out some felt and got started.

I wore my new flower on New Year's Day (and many days since!) but it wasn't until yesterday that I finally posted what I came up with.


I have a confession to make.  Last night (during my bout of insomnia) was the first time I have looked at any blogs since before Christmas.  (gasp!)  It's awful, I know.  I can't believe I just admitted to it.  I've been in a funk - don't judge me!

So last night I started catching up on my favorite blogs and you know what I came across in the side bar of Tatertots and Jello?  A flower that looks very close to mine (or maybe mine looks very close to hers)!  She actually used a template to cut her petals and only used two layers instead of the three I used.  Her center was a little different, also.  But all in all, our flowers look the same.

I was so embarrassed (and frustrated!)  I was pretty pleased with the flower idea I had...turns out, someone else thought of it first!  Huh!  Story of my life!

So go visit Jen over at Tatertots and Jello.  Maybe she's already done something you've been thinking about, too!
