Fun Needle Felted Flowers

Needle felting is so easy and so much fun with this wonderful Felting Flower kit from Pollika........

I made this darling flower garden in about an hour...with the complete supplies included in each kit.

Step one: Laying pattern on top of Fleece2felt, cut out 2 large flowers and 4 small flowers, plus 4 leaves.
Step 2: Place cut out flower on top of blue pad. Pull a small tuft of bhedawool out of ball, lay on top of Fleec2felt flower, to create lines in flower. Using needle felting tool, and an up and downward motion, poke the needle into the wool securing it to the Fleece2felt. this will take a number of pokes. you can see when the fleece is adhereing by how solid it feels. becareful not to poke your self.....those needles are sharp.
Step 3: lay finished flowers on top of green wope and poke until they are secured to wope. I left about 5 inches inbetween each flower.
Step 4: make some leaves in the same way, adhereing to green wope. Wrap your beautiful gaarland around the window in a childs room, or use as a purse handle...there are so many things you can do with this darlig quick project.
