Spring is coming soon. Here is a basket of wool flowers to get me in the mood for spring. Originally this basket was going to be filled with wool easter eggs, but I could not get them to satisfy me.
The basket is cut from a wool felted sweater. I accented the basket with a diamond weave stitching using persian wool in a slightly different color.
The flowers are hand-dyed wool, cut, stacked and stitched together in a penny rug style. The background is black wool from a reclaimed thrift store garment. I finished the edges with blanket stitching using some cotton crochet floss.
I am selling this one on ebay and in my etsy store.
