Mardi Gras is Tuesday, February 25, 2020, but the parades start in January in New Orleans. If you need something to wear for a Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans or your home town, here's a little accessory for you.

This flower is very lightweight, so it's easy to ship as a gift.

I cut, pressed and carefully hand-stitched this little flower from 4 fluffy layers of yellow, green and purple wool blend felt...these are the traditional Mardi Gras colors.

For the center of this flower, I picked a cool vintage white glass button with a gold fleur de lys. According to Wikipedia, "Following Hurricane Katrina, the fleur-de-lis has been widely used in New Orleans as a symbol of grassroots support for New Orleans' recovery."

I hand sewed tiny gold glass beads in rays on the petals. They remind me of the strings of bead that the people on floats toss to onlookers.

This flower measures 3"(8 centimeters) across. I backed it with green felt leaves and finished it with a circle of green felt and a pin back securely sewn on.

Your flower will ship USPS First Class Mail in a sturdy box with Delivery Confirmation for most addresses and expedited shipping is available, please see "shipping" for more info.
