Learn to Make a Handmade Felt Rose
Hand-rolled from wooltops or roving, using wet felting and needle felting
With a few simple and inexpensive pieces of equipment (that you can re-use over and over) and small amounts of sumptuous responsibly reared 'Wool Tops' (un-spun wool) I will show and explain how to easily make your own gorgeous Felt Roses in just a couple of hours - even if you are a beginner! These pretty roses are exquisite and perfect for flower headbands and head-dresses, corsages, or for pinning onto coats, bags or hats etc. too!
You can be a complete beginner I will teach you both 'Wet-Felting' and 'Needle Felting' during this little course. Making the actual felt for your rose yourself using the 'Wet Felting' method, is very satisfying and magical, and allows you to use different colour combinations resulting in more interesting finishes with subtleties of colour that you don't see in 'shop bought' felt.
Your finished felt is 100% wool and therefore very responsive to 'Needle Felting' and being sculpted, which makes it perfect for turning into lovely roses. A little bit of easy sewing at the end ensures that everything is well held together and robust enough to be used and worn regularly!
Included in this mini course is a 20 minute video of me showing and explaining step-by-step how to do everything. There is also a Q and A of frequently asked questions, and a list of everything you'll need to get started with a 10% discount code for my online store if you need supplies! Enjoy and I hope you love it! x
