Do you sell these already put together?
We do not sell finished projects, however if you would like we can put you in contact with one of our designers that may be able to sell you some flowers.
What setting do you recommend on the Maker? The rotary tool doesn’t seem to do the intricate cuts (the tops of the petals) well on felt (I also use Benzie wool blend). I tried marking the felt as stiff and it recommended using the fine point blade, which probably would have worked if I had set the pressure to ‘more.’ Any suggestions??
We use the rotary blade (pressure as “More”) for cutting felt, but you should try the fine point blade set to “More”. The Maker does tend to overcut more intricate details so we tend to hand cut those parts.
Was very excited to see these as they are similar to Matilja Poppies, native to California, and rather hard to grow in the home garden!
