This week I have finally managed to grab enough time between massaging my wonderful case studies to get stuck in to some felting again. I made six new felted flowers... they all have brooch backs and either plain braid or braid and organza necklaces

I really enjoy making these as I can do them in stages; first I do the needle felting and then they wait in a pot until I have time (and inclination!) to get my stash of beads out for a good session of embellishing


  1. They're reallypretty, I especially like the necklaces!
    Felting is something else I'd liketo give a go but think I have enough on my plate at them lol!

  2. Hi Rae, I am a new follower, found you via my lovely mate Kandipandis blog xx

  3. Super! I love the flower you sent me in the swap we did together, everyone remarks on it when I wear it!


  4. These flowers are lovely! I am facinated by felting and can't wait to complete my sewing orders so I can try it out. Can you recommend a good online felting resource for beginners? Also, I follow a blog called "terrie~.~smiling...." that has been focussing on nuno felting lately. I hope you'll check it out.

  5. these are so nice!! love the idea :)

  6. Lovely...well, I am also interested in felting, but there are so many other things I want to try and do,it keeps getting pushed further down the list!

  7. You are extremely clever. The felt flowers are beautiful. Maybe when I feel a bit better I could have a go.

    Thanks for your really wise comments on my post. I am very grateful to have your opinion.
