Leah is such a diverse fiber artist that I could write several articles covering this gifted lady. Today I’d like to introduce you to Leah’s the stunning wet felt flower kits. Now you will be able to create the same amazing flowers that Leah does. She is carrying them in her ETSY shop called “Spider Felt” for you to purchase for yourself or for a gift for someone who likes to try a new craft. With the instructions and materials included in this kit, you will make three flowers and stems using wet felting techniques. You are able to choose from one of eight color ways (clockwise from top left): violet, begonia, tulip, poppy, pansy, hydrangea, geranium, rose.
Materials provided: 1.5 oz of merino, 12″ square of tulle, 12″ square of bubble-wrap, instructions with photos, link to online photo tutorial. Following is a little about how Leah developed these amazing kits.
After months and months in development, testing, trials, comments and revisions, I’ve finally finished a Wet Felt Flower Kit. Materials included in this kit are sufficient to create three large flowers with stems: 1.5 oz merino, 12? square of tulle and 12? square of bubble wrap, photo instructions and an online photo tutorial. Thank you to the kit testers who helped enormously in the refining stages of this kit. My hat tips as I do a deep curtsy to Lora Shinn for the gorgeous photos she took on a very grey day in March. This kit will is now for sale in my ETSY shop; for crafters who have materials on hand, the tutorial is available for purchase as a PDF.
