Felted Flowers

After their hot wash...here they are drying in the sunshine....... (scroll to the previous post for the 'before' photos)
......a few beads added.....


......and a brooch pin.

I want to try some embroidery stitches on the others ...... need to experiment a bit with that!
(PS Got the pattern from http://www.knitting4fun.com/ - it says the kit makes 5 flowers but I have done 7 and there's still some wool left.)

Love how they turned out Linda :)
I have a book on knitting flowers, will have to show you, and if you have any wool and mohair mix, try that, they come out so nice and fluffy :)

those are lovely and the knitting is the enjoyable bit.The washing machine is a good way to finish them.

Fantastic results, I am sure you couldn't wait for them to be felted. The seed beads are a perfect touch....they are so beautiful bees may be attracted to anyone wearing one outdoors ;)

I have no business getting knitting needles out I have so much going on, BUT you certainly make it look tempting dear Linda!
Beautiful work!

oh my! these are awesome. Felting is one of the few things I have yet to try, but it's right there at the top of my list. I love knitting and crocheting flowers, I never thought of felting them. I'm gonna now!! love what you did with the beads on them.
