I got a request for a felted flower class after some people in my guild saw a picture of some very delicate flowers on Facebook. It is going to be a short class done in the evening. I haven’t made any in a while so I had to do a sample.
I made a stem
I also did some stamen. I wrapped them in plastic wrap so they wouldn’t stick to the rest of the flower while I was rubbing and rolling.
For the body of the flower I used a silk hanky and added a very thin layer of merino wool.
and this is the result
Flowers are fun to make and do not take long. I am going to work on some other methods and see what they want to do at the class. We will make them 2 different way in the class do to time constraints. I will take pictures at the class to show you how the students do.
