Learn how to wet felt a beautiful flower in this fun online class. Then, wear your flowers in your hair, pin them to your outfit, or create an everlasting bouquet. The possibilities are endless!
Start by laying out your wool roving and embellishment materials. Then use water, soap, and a bit of agitation to turn your roving into felt before tweaking your flower into its final shape. You’ll have time to finish one or two flowers during class, but your kit will contain enough materials to make another flower on your own later.
