All the mothers at K’s Waldorf school are banding together to make her teacher a story blanket. A few of the mothers are seasoned knitter and they have made a plan of what the blanket will look like. They have given the rest of us a few squares to knit. They will put all of our squares together to make our highly anticipated story blanket. We had a brain wave and decided to make double of each square… make two blankets and auction the second one off at our school’s May Fair! Oh Gosh… how I am going to want that second story blanket!
I felted all the flowers into the meadow in the same way.
This is what the underside of the felted meadow piece looks like. All the flower beards have been needle felted through to the other side of the meadow, thus securing the flowers to the felt.
And, voila, you have a lovely, soft, green and pink flower meadow for your child to play with.
Of course, you can make any color flower you desire. K wanted pink and I do think it looks lovely. Tonight, I will finish the two flower meadows for the school story blanket and I am so happy with how K’s meadow turned out, I think I’ll stick to pink flowers too. I will be sure to post a picture of the story blanket when it is finished. I can hardly wait to see it!
