Tutorial 3-D flower wet felt techniquepart 2Janine Bronneberg 2012 13 D felted Flower part 2:Requirements:Merino wool, different colours, yarns, possibly flax linen, water, olive soap, bubble plastic,needles for needle felt and foam cushion.
 I use pre- felt to make the flowers, this is a piece of felt that is made with 2 layers of thin wool,roof tiles laid, first horizontally then vertically above, this 2 x 5 min walken. This you can just let it dry and use when needed.
 Add about 2 layers merino wool, from ¼ wick. (take a wick in half and again another half portion). To this you can add some other colours wool yarn or explain your choice..Make this part wet with warm water in which olive soap is dissolved and start gently feltinguntil the fibres are interwoven.

What remains, you can always use as littlebud..Insert the needle with a centre with some yarn.Now felt each part separately for 2 x 5 min.I use a baking roll with bubble plastic as a tool, but you can also use a reed mat in which, yourwork rolls. Always put plastic on the wool to protect it.

After 5 min unwrap everything, put the flower in the otherdirection than where you started and walk again. So once you walk your work horizontally,the other time vertically. This will prevent you work too shrink to much in just one direction.Between each direction every time the role is unwrapped, wet it with warm water and soap.If you are satisfied with the shape of your parts, stop felting and cut the pieces into a flowershape.Now take the 2 bottom pieces and connect the flowers only in the middle through needlefelting.It is done correctly you see on the back the wool fiber come out.
