“I needle felted and wet felted this water lily and lily pad one petal at a time and then sewed it together as they were very felted. I felted each stamen and then waxed them for smoothness. During the wet felting I rinsed with lavender oil! “
– Kathryn Missildine, Oregon
These amazing creations were made by Vera Runova of Minnesota! Originally from Kazakhstan, Vera was familiar with wet felting the traditional Kazakh “yurtas.” She said, “I never thought that felt could be amazingly light, beautiful, bright colored and be putty in your hands.” We couldn’t agree more Vera!
In all these creations, Vera wet felts her base, then needle felts the finishing touches to give panache.
This beautiful poppy was wet felted with Living Felt New Zealand Pack Spanish Fiesta. The detail is just amazing!
Vera is new to felting but you would never be able to tell! Her wonderful creations are an inspiration to us all!
Thank you Vera for sharing your wonderful and amazing felted projects!
Vera uses a lot of merino top in her projects, and you can try the Living Felt kit for Wet Felting Flowers to make your own!
