What I Am Crafting Today

After a large sale last week in my shop, I need to restock my inventory. I've been stocking up on craft supplies, especially wool sweaters and wool fabric. I decided to start with some flower brooches . . .

I set up my little assembly line. . .

I had previously made some wet felted balls for the center of the flowers.

Next comes the cutting and trimming, needle felting a little bit of wool roving to the fulled wool, then gathering and stitching. Looks like I'll be working on these for a few days.

While I'm making flowers, I'll keep working on my ideas to combine some suede and wool fabrics that I've found, into my designs for handbags. I'll keep you posted on my progress!
