I have been experimenting with fulling lately and here is my fulled flower..I needle felted the lighter color in the middle of flower for added color and stability..

I was going to ask about fulling too, but I'll wait until I see your response to the first comment Wink I agree that the shape is awesome, you should try more types of flowers (such as orchids or roses or even more exotic ones). I can see the technique translating well to those ones too.

fulling is when you knit/crochet a project then 'wet felt'

felting usually means using roving/raw wool to shape..

same result though..

people use felting to also mean fulling..I just like to be sassy like that..hehe..I am going to try and make other flowers..I am super curious..

and Maremare..I have no idea what I am going to do with it..I suggest to my hubby that since it was a little cuppy like he could leave it on his desk and use it as a paperclip holder..evidently its still a flower even in its grey color..no go on that suggestion..

Ahh, I did not know that "fulling" was the correct term for felting something knit. I may be fulling a hat that I am currently in the process of knitting, it depends on how giant it ends up being Smiley I could definitely see your flower being attached to a hat or a wool coat.

Thanks for the explanation smittenheart! I think it would be really cute as a pin to put on a hat or purse!

good call maremare and frogz..I am making a bag out of a wool sweater..I am felting it as we speak..I am waiting for it to dry..I checked on it and it looks like I may need to felt it more..looks a little wooly and less felty..

I may attach it on there since it is the same color..

thanks..
