What people are saying about "Bloomin' Lovely": Just finished reading your Bloomin' Lovely Felted Flower Lariat instructions - they're fantastic. I can't believe how much work you must have put into the descriptions and pictures. I know I'll be able to follow along no problem." - a satisfied customer, Canada.
Bloomin' Lovely! Fun, sassy and one-of-a-kind - the Flower Lariat.
I get compliments from complete strangers every time I wear this unusual and versatile piece. "I've never seen anything like it before. How did you make it?"
I get this comment and question so often that I decided to create the 'Bloomin' Lovely' e-Book to teach you how!
This 32-page instructional eBook, packed with over 50 color photographs, takes you by the hand and leads you through the creative process of wet felting a flower lariat from start to finish using merino wool roving. Easy-to-understand instructions and lots of helpful tips guide you through the process.
* "Is it Glued? Is it Stitched?" - the answers are 'No!' and 'No!'. The eBook shows you how to make the components of the lariat and felt them seamlessly - it's easy when you know how!
* Nervous about using a sander? Don't be. The 'Use of a Sander in Felting' section describes how to use the Felter's secret weapon safely and effectively (use of a sander is optional).
Felt may be the oldest textile known to man but modern day felt is anything but old-fashioned! Let Felt Evolution help you 'Felt Like You Never Felt Before'.
