They are such cheerful flowers and one of the earliest to bloom. It is easy to understand their popularity. I have an additional reason to delight in their bright yellow heads bouncing in the March breeze. I make a natural dye from the fading flowers. I’ve also used them to make eco-prints on silk. I’ll collect and dry these blooms when they are past prime. Stay tuned for a daffodil dyeing project down the road.

Here are some of the finished items I made from the new large floral patterned felt. In addition to these 18″ pillows I made a smaller pillow and a couple of tea cozies. Most of the pillows are backed in green felt that coordinates with the grass and stems. One all blue flower pillow is backed in blue and a yellow/orange flower combination is backed in a soft gold. These will all be offered for sale this coming Saturday March 12th at the North Penn Select craft show in Lansdale PA.
