All of these are beautiful! I just needle felted my first flower today. I'm hooked!

"I can make that!" has been the start of more misadventures than I can count Cheesy

Thanks you!!  Grin Grin

sheepBlue - unfortunately no prize Sad I should do that sometime, but right now I don't even have a car so never know when I can even get to the post office.

It's easy enough with needle felting to create petal shapes, but they tend to be flat which is very un-petal like. Giving the petals more dimension after the basic shape is formed ends up taking a lot of time which is what got me to try doing the wet felting and then the combination of needle felting and wet felting for the flowers.

I'm working on a class in which these flowers will be used, so I expect to be doing some more experimenting in the next couple of weeks.

You're unique! Just like everyone else!!
