Gigantic Handmade Felted Wool Flowers! A Beautiful, Bold Creation for Your Purse, Coat, and More!
Yesterday, I shared my new line of striped scarves. (Thank you for all the kind comments about them!) They are now listed for sale in the scarves and hats section of my Etsy shop. While working on making those scarves, I was also creating these gigantic felted wool flowers. They are handmade through a combination of both needle felting and wet felting. They are either merino or corriedale wool or a mix of both.
Each is a whopping 12 inches (30.5 cm) in diameter! They are a bold, beautiful attention getter and a good conversational piece too. I plan to have them listed in my Etsy shop by the beginning of next week and will have more color combinations on the way. These are really fun to make so I can see myself creating several. Each one has its individual characteristics that make it completely unique and one-of-a-kind which is just like a real flower in nature.
If you'd like to see more photos, you kind find them on my flickr account.
