Petaloo flowers aren’t just for paper crafts, although that is where I’ve usually noticed people using them. Petaloo flowers can also be used to put the finishing touches on knitting, crochet, felting, sewing, and other wearable art projects. Keep in mind that Petaloo makes different varieties of faux flowers; some Petaloo flowers are felt, some of them are foam, some of them are paper, and some of them are fabric. So you have to make sure to choose an appropriate fabrication for the project you are working on. In my opinion, Petaloo felt flowers are a great choice for pairing with handknits or other wearable art projects.
The Petaloo booth at the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) trade show was filled with gorgeous inspiration for various ways to use their flowers, and the one that really caught my eye was this fabulous, colorful scarf that was bedecked with Petaloos. Isn’t that pretty? So inspiring!
The Petaloo booth featured all kinds of interesting ideas. They showed samples of how Crocs and felt amulet bags can be embellished with Petaloos too.

If you love your Crocs but you’re tired of everyone giving you a hard time about how ugly they are, here’s an idea for you! Doesn’t this just inspire you to want to decorate shoes to match all your hand knit scarves and sweaters?

Stitched Flora Doodles Flowers by Petaloo
These stitched Flora Doodles were one of my favorite new products at CHA. They are so versatile! I would love to use them for accenting my hand knit sweaters, scarfs and bags. I’m waiting patiently for these to arrive in stores. From what I understand, they should hopefully be available for sale later this month.
