OG 156 - A Bouquet of flowers

Now for something completely different... I've been learning how to make felt, and its great fun but very labour intensive. It will be a while before I'm brave enough to share the things I'm turning my felt into, so I'm still buying other people's work.

 A few days ago I was introduced to a shop in the fabulous Nicholson Building in Melbourne and I bought lots of felt shapes, all sold by weight. I have a few other things planned, but here are some of the brooches I made by layering the flower shapes. Two are secured by random buttons that have been lurking around the edges of my work bench, and the other one has a blue bead at its centre.  

The one I'm keeping is the orange one, the others are destined for friends.

Don't forget to see what other people create too....


  1. Felting looks like so much fun. My middle daughter has made a project but I haven't ventured there yet. These flowers are darling. I love those button centers.

  2. Felting is not easy, I tried doing it with thrifted wool sweaters and well, I did it but I don't know if I would again! LOL I love these, though, the style is very chic and cool with the pops of COLOR! Share share share, because I'd like to see more.

  3. These are awesome, Chat Noir! I took a felting course and bought a whole bunch of roving and never did anything with it. Story of my life. You're my felting hero.

  4. Love your beautiful felt flowers, they´re so pretty! Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, take care, Ira xox
