Making a felted flower with Peter.


Sheep Brooch


Did we already ‘talk’ about these sheepy brooches? They’re very similar  to the woolly sheep doilies (w/o the lace doily sandwiched between the wool layers). Read that post here.



All I did was wet felt a handful of wool roving and wool locks/staples (for additional texture). The majority of work was spent making the little oven-fired clay faces!


… painted black and stitched them into place on the felt.



Add a bar pin back or a piece of thread for an Easter tree decorated with sheepy ornaments?!


Reversible: twice the goodness?

I played a bit more with my Shetland wool roving (that’s surprising, wink!). I used two individual girls’ wool: Brenna’s ‘black’ and Reese’s moorit.

First, two layers or more of one sheep and then another two or three layers of the other sheep’s naturally colored wool.


See, reversible! Twice the goodness!???


The slight difference in each fleece influenced the wet felting process and final character of the project. I added Lincoln ‘fringe’ to both ‘ends’.


Always fun to explore (play) with wool!
