Textile Flowers, Whatiffing 87-95
Subsequently to the textile leaves - here are the flowers to follow! (Looks a bit like spring already, doesn't it?)
Like for the leaves, I used white wool roving for the base and punched different kinds of textile (artificial) flowers onto it - as you can see, they behave quite different depending on the fabric they're made of.
They all shrink pretty much while being punched - you will have to take that into consideration when composing.
For a better finish, I used a hand-felting needle to place some small dots of wool in the middle of each flower.
I'll give you the link to Sara's Whatiffing blog here once again, as Sara has now opened a Whatiffingaround Group at Flickr for this project!
