Wet Felt Flower

It has been such a strange time recently, I hope you and yours are keeping safe. 

Thank goodness for the NHS and crafts. 

I am sure I am not alone in finding solace in fibre and fabric. 

A friend asked about instructions for a felt flower so here it is. 

There are many ways of making felt and many different flowers, I hope you enjoy this. 

You just need very simple equipment and some quick felting fibre (eg merino). 

Equipment 

  • bubble wrap (or a bamboo mat),
  • a piece of netting, 
  • a rolling pin or piece of insulation pipe 
  • soap. 
  • A spray bottle, – a carefully washed cleaning spray bottle work well, or a water bottle with small holes punched in the lid.

For embellishment – beads, ribbons, brooch back, sewing thread.

If you don’t have any fibre, some of the on-line retailers are still posting out orders. These are local ones I know and use regularly, there are many others.
