Flowers are my second-favorite theme for felt accessories (fruit is my first).  As ever, I made myself doubles of all the for-sale barrettes shown here.  So far, I've worn all of them save for the Fabulous Felt Tropical Flowers Barrette (although I plan to break it out soon).  The Fabulous Felt Fall Flowers Barrette, by the way, looks far better at the base of a front-side ponytail than it does clipped to the strap of the (otherwise very cute) dress in the picture.  I wore it that way to see Whitney Cummings's standup show this past May, which turned out to a bit of the dud (the show, not the barrette).  I may "grow" some more flowers (believe it or not, I haven't made any barrettes in a week), but before that it's on to a crop that's a little more quirky.

What I love most about your style, and your work is that it's so colorful! I love color too-someone once remarked that my bags are "loud" and I was flattered! I've never been a big fan of neutrals.

I can't wait to see you new quirky crop of barrettes!
