I already told you last friday, that I gave a workshop at Nadine's place.
It was the one that has been postponed - for all kind of reasons - from precedent work-season.
Everytime a date was fixed, something came up and made us move up to the next date ...
until we finally succeeded to find a 'blanco' page in our agenda.
It's a one-day-workshop where students could choose from two flowers in felt. Not needle-felting, or wet-felting ... no, these are flowers that you sew on the machine !
Therefore you use the sheets of felt or felt as a fabric. You can find those in any hobby- or sewingshop or on fairs.
It's from the book 'Fresh Felted FLowers' from Lynne Farris;
here's a link where you can look inside and have a glimpse of all the other flowers.
Because I took only two of them : the gerbera and the magnolia.
Voilà : my examples
And now, you see the fingers at work:
marking, pinning, cutting, sewing, ....
There are many other flowers to make, but I had to make a choice,
and those two seemed to me to be the best to explain all the tricks and traps
And the results after a hard day work ?
Have a look on a warm red gerbera and
classy cream magnolia !
