Just wanted to share my very first wet felted project. A stone. I have tried to embroider it and add beads to look like little urchins etc from under the water. But with the colors it looks more like flowers. I'm going to have another go with a black one I made.

Now I want a whole bowl full. I hope to set up a swap for these in the months ahead.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

WOW! This is beautiful! I agree, a whole bowl full would be so wonderful. Great job. How hard was it to embroider?

Gorgeous!  Are these inspired by Lisa Jordan's work at Lil' Fish Studios?  She is my favorite felt artist and does felted stones as well as other beautiful felt art.  If you're not familiar with her, you should check her out.

I love stitching on felted stones! We should totally have a swap for it. These are awesome! The colors do makethem look a little floral vs urchin but they are still amazing.

cool!  I just tried this myself and I am in awe of how you made detailed stitches on the felted rock.  Can't wait to see more.
