Fiber Arts Friday: My Continuing Fiber Adventure with Felted Brooches

Last Fiber Arts Friday, I posted about my brooches made from cutting funky flower designs from a felted lambswool sweater. I used some of my vintage buttons to create the center of the flowers which you can see here.

Well, this week I had the idea to needle felt the centers of some flowers with wool roving. I really like the result!

Needle felting gives the flowers dimension as the petals come forward when you needle felt around the base of the center.

I really enjoy needle felting. I'll have to try to use it more often in my work. Have a look at what others are doing this Fiber Arts Friday at  Alpaca Farm Girl. Happy Fiber Arting!
