April Showers Bring Felt Flowers

My felt group's April workshop was to make felted flowers. Paige and Grace showed us some techniques using a cardboard cone. Above is the bouquet of flowers they made to show us examples of what we could try to do. The vase was felted in an earlier workshop.

A closeup of their flowers.

Paige showing us how to fine tune the felting of the inside of the flower. Materials included duct tape wrapped cone, bubble wrap, olive oil soap, netting, water.

Our finished flowers. Now I just want to make an entire garden of felt flowers!

This is Judy's silk scarf that she embellished with pieces of felt, along with her flowers.
