I was cutting up felted sweater bits for a different craft when inspiration hit!
The cap is angora, ooh so soft. The stem and base are both cashmere, because I’m fancy like that.
Sequins and beads, a bit of vintage doily lace and some of that yarn for making dish scrubbies (it’s so excellent as grass).
The base is a plastic juice bottle cap with some heavy nuts and bolts E-6000ed (ya, that’s a verb now) into the bottom. There is a skinny dowel inside to keep things from flopping over.
Oops, didn’t crop that photo very nicely did I. Oh well, this was an emergency “I am stressed and need to craft” middle of the night project. Not too shabby, all things considered.
