workshop bloemen vilten (making felt flowers)

Monday I did a workshop making felt flowers with Liesbeth Romeijn in a tipi near Sint Annaland in Tholen.  I love tipi's (actually it's a Suomi dwelling) and I love felting... so I couldn't wait!  This is the flower I made:

I haven't decided yet whether to use it as decoration, or as a corsage, but it was a lot of fun to make.  The next adventure was the 'sushi' felting.  I made a roll of red and white wool and rolled and rolled and rolled and rolled.  Eventually I had a felt sausage that I could cut into pieces when it dried.  I think they look a bit like sweets! The other cool thing about the workshop was the fellow felters.  I met another etsy member!! Simone from Moon d-sign.  So looks like there'll be more workshops to attend!

  1. Hi Andrea,

    Nice flower. It turned out really can be expected from an artist ;-) I still have to post mine on my blog.
