felt flower wine charms

Over Memorial Day weekend I had the pleasure of joining a group of girlfriends on a wine tasting weekend getaway to Yakima, WA. Anna and I prepared for our trip by doing a little craft on our Thursday Night Sewing Club evening. 

 We made these little felt fabric wine charms - one for each girl on the trip.

I found the felt flowers (pre-cut, of course!) at JoAnn's, and Anna dug through her bead collection for some solid colored beads for the centers of the flowers. We used thin black elastic to hold it all together - which was perfectly stretchy to fit over the bottom of a wine glass.
I wish I had taken a photo of the set of eight wine charms together! They were so colorful! However, Anna and I forgot to give everyone their wine charms until the morning of our departure from Yakima. Duh! I guess we were having so much fun that we just plum forgot!
