Never say never!

I always claim myself as a practical person making only functional items. And what is it? A dust collector! Five of them!



It was an accident actually... In one felter blog I saw apples and pears which were purely wet felted not needle felted as you see usually. No secret were revealed, so I've spent couple of days trying and here we are!

Three pears and two apples, all are wet felted using flat resist. I am quite please with the result! Frui1 7 Fruit1 8

  1. They look great, I never would have guessed they were wet felted, they look very solid. The red apple is just crying out to me to be eaten...

    1. Thank you Teri! They are solid, I stuffed them with wool scraps until firm.
