Felt Sunflower

I made this for the front of a birthday card, and I thought I’d share how I made it.

first I layered white wool tops in a rectangle, then blue and green for the sky and grass.

I then wetted it with hot soapy water,

and agitated it a with my fingers a bit so that it felted together.

Then I dried it and started to needle felt the stalk of my sunflower onto it.

And then the middle and the petals

I decided to leave the edge natural and used pva glue to stick it to a card.  Thank you for looking :)
