Birthday cards for Masha

I used selvages for Masha’s first birthday card and decorated it with an organza yoyo flower.
Unfortunately it didn’t arrive, so I made her another fabric card. This time I used felt to make leaves. It was inspired by this tutorial at Craft Snob.
I stitched fly stitch leaves with stranded floss.
The circles are attached with buttonhole stitches and beads.

  1. That was a great way of using those beautiful selvages, pity it got lost in the post.
    The felt leaves are interesting and nice. Great idea!

  2. what a shame, wonder where the card went, fingers crossed the latest one found its way okay, they are both very nice, I hold my hands up and admit to throwing away my selvages, mind you I do not seem to get pretty ones with my fabric
