Cricut Felties part II

Goood morning Blog,  as promised part two of Cricut Felties.
This time these were both made using Cricut Cartridge Straight From the Nest. 
The flower pics dont show it.... grrr  ( may be taking those again )  
but, the flower its self has a 'pillow' of hot pink and purple, then two more flowers were cut in the hot pink and pale pink and outter edges sewn for layering only.   This way is fluffy enough to serve as a table top pin cushion. large yellow button for the center and topped with a red, velvet covered button.   The leaves were both sewn with two layers but not stuffed.   Just tucked into the layers of the flower petals.
I love the way it turned out !  Happy colors :)

and then there is the OWL.   WHO LOVES YOU BABY ?!?!!?  Oh.. that cut is such a simple Cricut cut in paper but when done in felt the colors and layers pop!  I stuffed the main body but not the wings.  then added the final layer of wings in blue.  I dunno.. .just liked the way it looked.   I used prima flower centers for the eyes and his belly... i took the paper pattern and traced the swirl of its tummy in perm. marker. then covered in glitter glue.    Yep you guessed it... another pin cushion :)   this time i was thinking that its back side would serve to hold the pins.  Kinda like the pins would represent the tail feathers of the owl.   
I sooo see more of these in the future :)   Im addicted.

These will be posted over on the Collectors Cut Blog soon! be sure to check it out for my friends and I are challenging ourself to use every cart in our collections!  Their creations are from different carts !
